Mayor escapes media coverage
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.
