1. Thoroughness
2. Accuracy
3. Fairness
4. Transparency

Right. Until someone sends you an e-mail on a sensitive and highly controversial subject. Then your responsible reporting takes a back seat to circulation.

I posted this article so readers could compare what a journalist has to say about reporting responsibly to the way the Pleasanton Weekly reports.
Stacey (the real one) - I'm confused...I thought that if you registered with your name and neighborhood, no one else could use the same moniker. It appears they can, but without the notation that the poster is a registered user.

I don't take the morning paper with a cup of coffee or tea, I take it with a bucket of salt.
