  •  SB newspapers suck. (7+ / 0-)

    Daily Sound (a free paper) endorsed the most insane, right-wing mayoral candidate, who was being financed by a Texas real estate tycoon. The Santa Barbara News-Press, the biggest paper in town, endorsed McCain in '08.

    The Daily Sound is also notorious for running editorials calling for draconian tactics to rid our town of illegal immigrants (and gang members as a bonus!) and the homeless (who undoubtedly deprive our town of much needed tourist dollars).

    People still have BOYCOTT THE NEWS-PRESS bumper stickers on their cars from the days of the scandal at the News-Press.

    These papers don't represent the citizens of Santa Barbara by a long shot. Our only hope is in the free SB Independent.

      I used to write for the Indy from 2001-2003. Not much—just occasional music-related stuff—but the paper seems a bit different these days. DId ownership change? Editorial shakeup?
