The party-ID treatment of Fabian Nuñez, whose term as California Assemly Speaker ended on May 13, but whose term in the Assembly ended just this past Sunday, was barely better than what Kerry observed in the articles she reviewed yesterday.
Here's the rundown, which I will follow with past examples of obviously disparate treatment of Republican politicians whose sons got into much less trouble with the law:
In another edition of, "where in the world is that Democrat party identification?" Pauline Repard of The San Diego Union Tribune made no mention what so ever that former State Assembly Speaker Fabian Nuñez is a California Democrat in an article about his son's recent arrest. The L.A. Times was no better either in identifying Nuñez's party affiliation. The Associated Press mentions Nuñez's party in the third paragraph from the bottom of the story.
Nuñez's son, Esteban,19, was arrested Tuesday with three other men, in connection with the stabbing death of a young collegian.
