Who's more embarrassing? U-T or Filner?
Journalists debate U-T TV's gauche Filner dance video.
The Los Angeles Times has broken a story about U-T TV's juvenile, unprofessional post on the Filner controversy. TV Week and Huffington Post have also commented on the video. All should consider Matt Potter's excellent Reader post: when details about Arnold Schwarzenegger's alleged sexual harassment leaked in his campaign for governor, Papa Doug Manchester, owner of the U-T, not only ignored the women's protests, but showered money on Ah-nold's campaign.
