PAMELA PEERY, San Clemente
As a former editor of the Los Angeles Daily Journal, I am appalled at your flagrant violation of basic news journal standards. Your recent front page article on Gene James, on practically the eve of the election, violated basic news standards.
Print news outlets are not supposed to print character assassination articles like this so close to election time. A month ago—fine. That would have given James time to refute and counter the allegations. It’s proof of an effort on your part to inappropriately influence the election.
Shame on you, San Clemente Times. I expected more integrity from you.
