I realize misleading headlines supported by grand oversimplification are par for the Com. But this one really got my goat. Is it too much to expect journalism from the Com? The city is grappling with serious budgetary issues. Journalism should inform and clarify complex issues, not obfuscate them. Are my expectations for the Com too high?


  1. At least it has a poll so you can kneejerk react with only a single click!

  2. I'm not sure how you can frame that debate properly though other than our priorities as a country seem to be messed up. I mean, we are cutting teachers left and right and yet somehow we can continue to afford to give people who don't need more money those precious tax cuts.

  3. They're playing to their target market, which is crazy people. Ever taken a look at the comments? The commenters make headlines like that one look responsible.
