Reg Reporter Jon Cassidy Proves News Doesn't Have to be Bland

​Too often mainstream news reports of political meetings are boring, colorless recitations that quickly drive readers to the next story.

But Jon Cassidy at The Orange County Register recently demonstrated that this sad state of affairs doesn't always have to be the case.

On March 25, Cassidy made me laugh out loud and his lines are worth noting to Weekly readers--and not just because the joke of the article is Dana Rohrabacher, our Costa Mesa representative whose career proves that even clowns can get elected to Congress.

"The 80 or so people who came to the first meeting of the Costa Mesa Taxpayers Association at Skosh Monahan's in Costa Mesa were told that the group would be non-partisan," Cassidy wrote. "Anyone concerned that capital improvements in Costa Mesa had been slashed by 82 percent in two years was welcomed, co-founder Ethan Temianka said Thursday night."

Then came the priceless line that so many mainstream journalists in Orange County would have been afraid to publish:

"But somebody forgot to tell Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, who combined several Glenn Beck theories into a rant against Marxist Barack Obama who's a pawn of British Petroleum doing the bidding of George Soros."

Damn, that's good stuff.

They'd rightly be "afraid to publish" that unattributed comment because it's a blatantly biased opinion, completely inappropriate in a news story, however accurate it may be. Surely at least one quote supporting the categorization of "rant" would have been called for under the most liberal definitions of journalism
