CATER Should Take Its Own Advice and “Stop Lying”

The Ministry of Truth was one of four government bureaucracies that rule fictional Oceania in George Orwell’s classic novel 1984 – the propaganda arm of Ingsoc; its job to twist stated reality to suit the extant needs of the Party. The full-page political advertisement purchased by CATER in yesterday’s Anaheim Bulletin ad embodies the spirit of the Ministry of Truth, ...

ACLU Goes Fishing; Demands Anaheim Turn Over Huge Trove of Documents, Emails and Texts

The ACLU is demanding the city turn over a trove of documents, voice-mails e-mails, and text messages – both official and personal — from a small army of current and former councilmembers, staff, city commission appointees and private citizens, often pertaining to circumstances, events or issues not even tangentially related to “racially-polarized voting.” It’s sort of like litigation carpet bombing, and ...

SaveAnaheim.com: Gone With the Wind

The Great Jason Young Temper Tantrum

The “controversy” over the OC Register modifying its advertising policy is one of the most over-hyped trivialities I have read in a long, long time. It was started by the Voice of OC putting itself in the position of being publicist for a temper tantrum thrown by a noisome gadfly named Jason Young, a blogger and long-time Anaheim resident who ...

More Demolition Of Myth-Making About Talley’s Departure

Gabriel San Roman of the OC Weekly has published a story taking aim at the myth being spun by the usual suspects — Vern Nelson, the Take Back Anaheim crowd, Los Amigos — that Cristina Talley was a sort of Latina Joan of Arc pushed out by a sinister council majority in retribution for speaking out on behalf of la ...
