A friend of mine just called and gave me a great idea. If there ever was a doubt that the editorial board of the Union Tribune and the Republican Party were in bed together, this week's orchestrated attack on Aguirre should make it clear. Those of us who have been around long enough, have seen it played over in every election. The editorial endorsements read word for word like a Republican hit piece: the Democratic candidate is in the pocket of big labor and the Republican candidate would bring "reform" and business acumen to the office. Well, if you are fed up with the UT's right-wing, pro-developer, anti-working people, anti-environment slant, cancel your subscription. Since their circulation numbers have fallen dramatically in the last few years, every canceled subscription can actually hurt them.

The UT editorial Board and the Republican Party in bed together? Literally? You're not talking about Bob Kittle and Carl DeMaio are you?
What's really sad is that the local electronic media get their leads for the U-T. This is why channel 10, 8, 39 and the rest really don't do independent political reporting...
The Labor Council currently has a campaign to cancel subscriptions.
