U-T San Diego CEO John Lynch’s threat to use his newspaper as a weapon against the Unified Port of San Diego attracted a lot of scrutiny last week. In this edition of Fact Check TV, Scott Lewis explains what the controversy is all about and where mayoral candidate Carl DeMaio falls in the fray.

Lewis also discusses a recent Fact Check of Mayor Jerry Sanders. When the mayor appeared on Fox 5 San Diego to promote a bike-sharing program, he claimed San Diego would be the first city to not provide taxpayer subsidies. Is that true or false?
