The Bee and the permanent "Matsui Seat"

A Bee reader thinks the Sacramento Bee is enabling the endowment of a permanent "Matsui Seat" in congress. This letter was printed in Monday's Bee:



Where's the watchdog press, you wonder?  It's off chasing Sarah Palin's FaceBook page.

A reader says former Bee editor Bill Endicott supports the permanent Matsui seat.

Truth to power.

Somebody should post the pro-Matsui letter to the editor by the Bee's former Capital Bureau chief William "Bill" Endicott that is posted today in Opinion. Talk about an unabashed bleeding liberal talking down to the anti-Matsui crowd! It's classic insight as to why the Bee has been/is so biased in its political coverage.

I've read Endicott's letters before and thought the same thing. How can a newspaper insist it's fair and unbiased when this guy ran the show? He was like deputy managing editor before they put him out to pasture. You'd think he would be the poster boy for not using your real name in letters!

9:30 - thanks, I'll look for it... since I don't subscribe I'll look for a copy in the garbage can at the gym.

Endicott is like so many journalists who think their job is to tell the rest of us what we ought to think and who we ought to vote for. The pretense of professionalism and fairness is thinner every year.
