Stuart Leavenworth, a Bee editorial writer and associate editor, was named the paper's editorial page editor Friday.
The veteran journalist's promotion was announced by Cheryl Dell, publisher and president, and Melanie Sill, editor and senior vice president, following a nationwide search. Dell cited Leavenworth's ability to "frame issues to help readers come to their own conclusions about the challenges facing our region."
A Fresno native, Leavenworth replaces David Holwerk, who left The Bee in June to join a nonprofit foundation in Ohio.
Leavenworth, 49, has been on The Bee's editorial board for five years, writing editorials and columns on state government, the environment and other topics.
For the past five months he has been writing a blog and columns about his experience as a chef's apprentice at Oliveto, an Oakland restaurant where he's been working while on sabbatical. He'll start his new post in late September.
A 2005 profile of Leavenworth said he lives in midtown and rides his bike to work. I have nothing against people who live in midtown and ride their bike to work. But you can bet the rent money Stuart lives inside the elitist/Dem bubble that is Midtown Sacramento.
From comments at the Bee's web site:
So will he continue as his predecessors have done earning what would be a more accurate description of the job title: propagandist and debate suppressor in chief?
Like MSDNC, CNN and the NY Times, they all have their market.
McClatchy’s is clearly whoring itself to the Marxist, DNC talking points market, and will continue to do so with this new editorial clown.
However, speaking of real disingenuous whores, Melanie Sill’s smoke screen for her papers Marxism continues to be, “It’s just that darn economy.”
It’s a great dog and pony show. But quoting their west coast pimp harry reid,
“I hope they (McClacthy) go out of business soon”
OMG! He lives in midtown and rides his bike to work! What outrage will McClatchy impose on us next? Oh, wait. McClatchy is a privately owned company, and thus can promote anyone it wants. And it has the right to take any editorial stance it wants. And anyone who doesn't like it can watch Faux to get another viewpoint -- or can watch Faux exclusively and get only one viewpoint. So no problem, right?
"Oh, wait. McClatchy is a privately owned company, and thus can promote anyone it wants."
McClatchy, a PUBLICLY traded company whose shares were trading at $1.99 in today’s market.
You have a lot to learn "Sport."
But they don’t teach capitalism or free market stuff over at huffington do they?
But you sure have the Marxist/ Alinsky stuff down pat!
Go get em pussycat!
...McClatchy, a PUBLICLY traded company whose shares were trading at $1.99 in today’s market...
Right. It's a privately owned company, and thus free to do what it wants. And anyone can buy its products or not. Nothing Marxist about that.
You have a lot to learn, sport. Try to pay a little better attention in class this afternoon.
"McClatchy’s is clearly whoring itself to the Marxist, DNC talking points market, and will continue to do so with this new editorial clown."
You people obviously have no freaking clue what Marxism is all about...
and as for...
"But you can bet the rent money Stuart lives inside the elitist/Dem bubble that is Midtown Sacramento."
um... right... because all those elitist transients make such a good power base... Do you KNOW midtown?
Biz as usual at the Sac Bee editorial dept. Another fringe liberal running the show. This is what they came up with after a so-called nationwide search? Must be some slim pickings out there to bite on a McClatchy job.
