Mayor es­capes media cov­er­age

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “On high-pro­file events, mayor low key,” June 14

The lack of real, day-to­day beat cov­er­age of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s ad­min­is­tra­tion al­lows him to de­cide what’s im­por­tant and what’s not. Lo­cal cov­er­age of Garcetti is frac­tured at best.

In a one-news­pa­per lo­cale with lo­cal tele­vi­sion fo­cused on any­thing but lo­cal gov­ern­ment, not even ra­dio al­lows for an in­for­ma­tion venue for res­i­dents — and thus you have the real rea­son no­body votes, be­cause no­body re­ally knows what Garcetti has done. In ef­fect, Garcetti isn’t held ac­count­able to any­one.
