Re: “Austerity's Champion

For more than three decades, I have been honored to know and work with Dan Borenstein, a tireless journalist and investigative reporter who repeatedly has stood up for the public's right to know and for legislation like the Brown Act, and whose legion of work on government oversight has benefited voters at every level. I was honored to be a part of a team with him in my days at the Contra Costa Times, where his dogged work uncovered corruption in city bonds programs that resulted in the recall of four out of five Pittsburg, CA city council members.
In the years since, he's never stopped being a thorough, aggressive, uncompromising reporter who serves the public good with his work.
Has he upset some on the powerful side of government? Absolutely.
Has he riled some among powerful interests, among them in labor? Of course.
Which is why he still represents one of California's most admirable examples of a reporter who publishes "without fear or favor."
For the East Bay Express to target such a journalist is beyond laughable, especially with a piece that so lacks basic standards of good journalism.
Its clearly time for Robert Gammon, a former student in SFSU's journalism department, to go back for remedial coursework on the difference between public relations for particular causes, and journalism in the public interest --- which is what "without fear or favor" really means.
