An Apology From HOPE

This just in from the HOPE Coalition:

To all readers of HOPE Coalition's "Organization Recommendations for 6/6/06 State Ballot Propositions."The HOPE Coalition deeply regrets listing the Times/Standard's endorsement of Humboldt County's Measure T in the June 6, 2006 election when, in fact, they have not yet made any recommendation. Charles Winkler, the Times/Standard's editor, has said they will probably make a recommendation on this coming Saturday, June 3, 2006.

In 10 years of listing diverse organizations' recommendations on state ballot propositions at every election, this is the first time that an error has been reported. This election has been particularly difficult for our staff because this primary ballot has held a minimum of interest for most of the organizations. Consequently recommendations have been last minute, or no decisions, defying our printing deadline before the election.This is not an excuse for the error, which hurts my professional pride, and for which I take full responsibility.

Mayer Segal, editor of the HOPE Coalition Newsletter.

Didn't we just read some rude missive from one of those Democracy Unlimited nutjobs accusing us of being liars for pointing out the Times-Standard's non-support of Measure T? Apologies?

Then again, being a loyal lapdog of these gangsters means never having to say you're sorry.

I'm sure it was Democracy Unlimited's fault somehow!

Why didn't the North Coast Journal make endorsements? Playing it safe?

I don't think they ever make endorsements. Leastways, not that I can remember.

I believe they did make endorsements in some races and issues. It was usually done as an editorial in the front.

Hanks Sims told me they were trying to get away from doing endorsements, but didn't give a reason. Maybe they didn't want all the grief of people disagreeing with them?
