The Type Of Community Based Reporting The Los Angeles Times Should Be Doing!

This morning's article by Hector Becerra on the potential affects of the new Gold Line on the real Eastside of the City of Los Angeles (which is different than East Los Angeles) is the type of journalism that can only come from someone with first hand - and life long - knowledge of the community he writes about.

It is also a story of how the actual community feels about the project and not a journalist's pre-packaged take on the story as is too often the case in the Times.

Beyond that, I have no comment - just read the above linked story.
