Not Rupert Murdoch, that's for sure

  Matt Jenkins' update on L.A.'s Metropolitan Water District is a wonderful and necessary piece, taking up slack since the Chicago Tribune gutted the once-proud L.A. Times, which no longer appears capable (HCN, 11/12/07). It gives me little pleasure to note that where mainstream media regularly fails to look out for the public interest, your independent alternative faithfully plays its critical role of providing news in a useful context. But I'll be kicking into the kitty in the Research Fund, because if you didn't do it, who else would?
