Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2006 | It’s time to hold the U-T accountable for the consequences of their culture of corruption, time to force the U-T to do the right things for San Diego families.
In his voiceofsandiego.org “San Diego: What Now?” column on April 27, 2005 Goldsborough wrote “– The San Diego Union-Tribune, a Republican newspaper, has corrupted city democracy.”
It is time for the taxpayers of San Diego to reject the U-T culture of corruption, time to force the U-T to accept responsibility and accountability for their outrageous acts against public interests. These acts include electing and enabling Golding, Murphy and Sanders to create and perpetuate the San Diego financial crises with consequences of failures in public safety and health, breakdowns in infrastructure and long-term reductions in quality of life in San Diego. During the years that Golding and Murphy committed their acts of corruption the U-T chose to watch and do nothing, ordering their “Watchdog” to look the other way, and now all San Diegans are suffering unacceptable consequences of this editorial policy.
Among the most outrageous acts during the Golding-Murphy and now Sanders years were that America’s finest police and firefighters protecting San Diego families have been continuously betrayed by the U-T culture of corruption causing unacceptable levels of crime and destruction, threatening all families in San Diego today and for far too many years to come.
The Union-Tribune must be forced to accept their responsibility to protect San Diego family safety, health, infrastructure and quality of life as their highest priority instead of their traditional mandate of political demagoguery.
