Rebuilding After the Wildfires

Kathryn Steinle Murder Trial

This week, opening arguments began in a murder trial that’s at the center of a national debate over so-called sanctuary cities and immigration policy. When 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle was allegedly shot and killed by an undocumented immigrant, President Trump and other immigration hard-liners cited her case to support building a border wall and cracking down on sanctuary policies.

Thomas E. Mann’s “One Nation After Trump”

In recent weeks, U.S. Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) and Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) have said they will not seek re-election next year, citing deep disagreements with President Trump’s leadership and behavior. As the Republican Party engages in soul-searching, the president’s base continue to support him. How Trump came to power, and the GOP’s role in his rise, are the focus of a new book by UC Berkeley resident scholar Thomas E. Mann, “One Nation After Trump.”

    Emslie and Lagos so called “reporting” on the trial of Sanchez Lopez (or whatever he calls himself today) is an outrageous example of bias. Rather than acting as journalists they are acting as surrogates for Matt Gonzalez. In fact their so called reports sound like they are press releases from the Public Defenders office. Some one should tell them that Mr Sanchez Lopez is not Sacco or Vanzetti so stop treating this creep like he is a misunderstood hero. I will settle for just some fair and balanced journalism for a change.
