The Poynter Institute’s Jim Romenesko turned up the letter from the Los Angeles police union to the Union-Tribune’s new owners.

The letter from Paul Weber, president of the Los Angeles Police Protective League, laments about the U-T’s editorial stance:

It is one of the most virulently anti-public safety employee pages of any newspapers in California, if not the country. …

The Union-Tribune Editorial Page was certainly free to express its hatred of public employees when it was under different ownership. However, since the very public employees they continually criticize are now their owners, we strongly believe that those who currently run the editorial pages should be replaced.

When you went to pension funds seeking their investment dollars, you promised to invest that money for the benefit of those funds and their members. One way you can fulfill that promise is to dismiss the Editorial Staff of the San Diego-Union Tribune.
