"collapsed after a citizen's group failed"

Calling BPCI a "citizens group" is mis-representation of the highest sort.
This type of shoddy reporting continues on KPBS.

Soledad Cross Battle Might Be Heading To Supreme Court

"Erected in 1954, the memorial is the nation's oldest Korean War Veterans Memorial..."

Is this directly from the war memorial group PR pamphlet?

Truth is it was called the Easter Cross when first erected in 1954 and didn't become a "war memorial" until AFTER the first suit was brought in 1989.

We expect better reporting from PBS.

Roundtable: Manchester And The Port; Dueling Mayoral Endorsements; Judges Ride Free

Just a small thing: because we have a gay candidate - who lives with a "partner" - it might be a good thing to specify that Manchester and Lynch are business partners.

Art In An Unlikely Place: An Ocean Beach Public Bathroom

Ms. Carone:
"Some of the streets in OB are named after authors and philosophers."
Actually, those streets are in Point Loma, over the hill from OB. Closest Ocean Beach street names come are Froude (mathematician) and Guizot (historian) neither of whom are quoted in the comfort station artwork.

Accuracy is the soul of news reporting.
