Daily Planet Mum on Charges Editor Manipulates News

We’ve been waiting for Berkeley Daily Planet editor Becky O’Malley to respond to charges that she drove her reporter Judith Scherr to quit in exasperation ever since the news hit the SF Weekly‘s web site. Will Harper, the Weekly‘s managing editor and unrepentant degenerate, reported that after resigning, Scherr sent a mass email to her friends, in which she said she just couldn’t take O’Malley’s abuse and reworking of stories to fit her personal political agenda anymore: “After 2.5 years of being insulted, berated and lied to by the Daily Planet‘s executive editor — and having my stories distorted by the deletion of quotes from persons Becky O’Malley hates and the addition of her nasty remarks about such people — I have left the Planet.”
