San Diego Needs a Real Newspaper

I wish San Diego had a real newspaper, with its own staff, who wrote their own stories, dug up real scandals, exposed corruption and crime, and dealt with local issues in a way that was a benefit to the citizens of the local community.

The San Diego Union-Tribune is not that newspaper.

Ever notice that most of this excuse for a paper is actually wire stories from other sources? Here's today's front page:

Only thing missing is a New York Times wire story. Have no fear, i'm sure there will be one tomorrow or the next day.

Do you ever read Voice of San Diego. It's no where near top notch reporting, but it's good and solid local news. I've got high hopes for it.

You don't expect the owners of the Union-Tribune to actually spend the money hire more reporters to do full, local, investigative reporting? Profits man!

Especially when the owners are lean-right, conservatives.
