The “F” Words on Editors Roundtable
Friday, April 25, 2008
I had to think long and hard about including that brief discussion in Editors Roundtable this morning . Producer Hank Crook and I pondered whether the incident warranted time on the program and decided that since it was part of the week's news with interest building as the week progressed, the mayor's use of that impolite epithet deserved to be presented to the editors for their opinions. Apparently, San Diego Union-Tribune editorial page editor Bob Kittle and Los Angeles Times San Diego bureau chief Tony Perry had different takes on the moment. What a shame that Andrew Donahue , co-executive editor of voiceofsandiego.org and our listeners didn't have a chance to weigh in. But the campaign for San Diego mayor is rich with material and controversy, and so we moved on.
