What is the point of all this other to expose these people as spoiled children. They didn't get what they wanted (TV coverage of the circus atmosphere they are trying to create for this trial), so they make it up by creating a YouTube docu-drama?!
Talk about having your head where the sun don't shine.......but, why should that be surprising.

Justice is best served by freedom of information. Because this is such an emotional and easily misrepresented issue, knowing exactly what is being said in the trial is valuable.

The biased reporting and advocacy on the part of Pleasanton Weekly has greatly diminished what useful function it might serve to our community. The overall quality of reporting has degraded over the years, and as if that were not enough, the paper has become just one more Left-wing advocacy rag for causes that are not eveb Pleasanton-specific in the first place.

Bias reporting should definitely be called out and Identified for what it is! So, what is the example of bias here? And what is the Weekly advocating? If StopBiasedReporting could mention what exactly he/she is talking about, we could discuss it.

The article above reads like straight up factual reporting. It's up to you to decide what you think about the coverage of the trial; this article just tells you what is happening and why the people involved are doing it.

If the issue is mentioning a state trial in a local paper, I guess the Weekly thinks people might want to comment on it.....
