Manchester's Foray Into Journalism Elicits Praise And Worry

This was terrific reporting. We need more of this! I had to create an account online just to comment. This is the best, most important and most hard-hitting reporting I've heard on KPBS in a very long time. I live in Vista and am deeply troubled by Manchester's purchase of multiple news outlets. He quickly changed the format of the North County Times, and now the Letters page--always filled with letters from locals, about all sorts of issues, has been pared back to nearly nothing. That was the most interesting part of the paper, and it's a shame to see it go.

It is so critical to a healthy democracy to have a tenacious media that keeps a clear separation between themselves and government officials and candidates for office. Manchester makes no bones about tearing down that wall, and that is a very sad, very bad thing for all of us.
