Dennis Evanosky has some great coverage of the S.E.R.V.E. meeting and claims therein. Rather than falling into the trap of thinking that journalism entails telling two sides of a story and leaving it at that, something we see a lot of in local news coverage, Evanosky digs a little deeper into one of the key claims of the Anti-LGBT recallers:
Not an article can be written or cited about SunCal these days without what is becoming an almost ubiquitous comment posting from alamedapointinfo.org.

Alameda Magazine misses it’s big chance to provide insight into the Measure A debate.

I know, two posts in one day, but with the timing issue of this, In the “file under deja vu” category, the Alameda Hospital Board has announced another vacancy. This time it’s Kevin Farrell who is stepping down.
