The largest circulation newspaper in western America decided to take Adam Gray to task last week. In a 715-word editorial, the Los Angeles Times denigrated Assembly Bill 313, which Gray authored.
When the Merced Assemblyman asked to respond, the Times told him to put it in a letter to the editor – 150 words max. (Gray declined, but you can read his original response here.)
Hardly seems fair. But it might explain why the Times editorial writers go to such lengths to defend the State Water Resources Control Board. Fairness isn’t especially important to either of them.
