San Diego Republicans are livid over a recent tweet by San Diego CityBeat’s political columnist John Lamb–calling the remark above, against San Diego Republican apparatchik Tony Kravic, a Twitter “death wish.”
The conservative blog San Diego Rostra was the first to pick up on the tweet:
While [Lamb] will no doubt say that he was joking, and may at some point feign an apology, this provides an illuminating insight as to the mindset of San Diego CityBeat.
CityBeat is nothing short of a Democratic and labor union press release machine intent on pushing a liberal agenda and slamming conservatives. The effort to remain objective has long ago been abandoned and goes well beyond simply leaning left. Lamb’s latest public comment with a death wish to the chair of the Republican Party is just a string of attacks and biased reporting that Republican candidates and officials have had to endure.
CityBeat editor Dave Rolland told SD Rostra, “[D]on’t confuse alt-weekly writers with politicians. We don’t apologize every time panties are twisted.”
