Who will rule Mayor Faulconer?

"Non-profit" literally trashed former Congressman Bob Filner from the earliest moment of his mayoral campaign via scurrilous "reporting" from writer Liam Dillon. VOSD simultaneously promoted the beauty pageant that was Nathan Fletcher's failed and schizophrenic (Rep? Dem?) mayoral bid. (Both Fletcher and VOSD remain Jacobs' projects.) "Non-profit" KPBS over at SDSU has established a shadowy connection with "non-profit" i-newsource. Together they were instrumental in pushing Mayor Filner's resignation. This tag-team scooped and live-covered Donna Frye's two public plaza rants against Filner. Subsequently they ran interviews with a long queue of women who claimed sexual harassment by him -- including, incredibly, ex- U.S. Navy Admiral Ronne Froman. KPBS has a newsroom and who knows what else donated by Joan and Irwin Jacobs. Its coverage traditionally has been soft on local GOP politicians most of whom attended SDSU. Founders of i-newsource are ex-U-T editor Karin Winner and reporter Lorie Hearn. Today i-newsource's published list of "members" is loaded with avowed Filner-haters and Fletcher supporters. Whatever else it may be, the "non-profit" designation is always a guarantee of deep cover. The Reader is transparently for-profit, based on advertising and, fortunately for us, it is independent.
