Sunday's links and comments
Sometimes reporters miss what is really newsworthy. Take this headline:
Has the mayor's new girlfriend, who is only 20, been drinking?The article focuses on the age difference between the mayor and his girlfriend and the question of whether the mayor's girlfriend is drinking underage. Someone could serve in our military at age 17 and be sent to a foreign country to defend our country and possibly be shot at and we don't think people can handle an alcoholic drink until they are 21? But the real story here is where the story originated. They are talking about San Francisco's mayor Gavin Newsom. If we are talking about a politician in San Francisco in a heterosexual relationship that is newsworthy. As if that isn't enough to get the mayor in trouble the article had an even more disturbing item near the end - his lady friend is registered to vote as a Republican.
