I wonder if the press gets this sort of thing happening in Pleasanton?

Much has been in the press about a Berkeley city official acting on the orders of a police official showing up at a reporter's house in the middle of the night to 'correct' an article on the Contra Costa Times website. Then the city kept calling the reporter after the middle-of-the-night visit asking for more 'corrections.'
One editorial after the fact said "I could see if we were in say, Kenya or Venezuela, where the authorities routinely use intimidating tactics against news reporters in an effort to control what they publish or air. But in Berkeley?"
I wonder whether the reporters ever find people showing up on their doorstep or get phone calls like this in Pleasanton? Was this an isolated incident or does this happen in this city?
