San Francisco Bay Guardian Tells You How to Vote

Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2011 at 2:11 PM

Remember when Bruce Brugmann, chief editor with the San Francisco Bay Guardian, decided that the right-wing Examiner had no place in a liberal bastion like San Francisco?

Brugmann never ceases to shock us when it comes to playing God. So we weren't surprised this morning to see that the left-wing newspaper offered up an online poll, asking readers who they would choose for mayor in the upcoming election.

Correction: The paper tells readers who to vote for.

That's right: The poll lists the top candidates and then blatantly marks the name of progressive Supervisor John Avalos.

We know that during election season, the debate should be about issues and candidates, but alas, the Bay Guardian cannot resist inserting its own position, which is to dictate political views.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
