Why hasn't Orange County's press exposed the motive (greed) and the methods (deceit) which lie at the heart of the developers' battle against Measure A, a battle which has been fought on several fronts since Citizens for Sensible Growth got 96,000 signatures to put the initiative on the ballot?
Initially, the developers sought to keep Measure A off the ballot by going to court. When their suits failed they entered into developer agreements with the Board of Supervisors. They have now formed and financed a bogus citizens' group to defeat Measure A with slick, fraudulent ads on radio and billboards and in newspapers and mailers.
When a free press fails in its responsibility, a failure in democracy is not far off.
