I appreciate this Davisite article and completely agree with its response to the defensive Enterprise article by Tanya Perez. However, the problem with the Enterprise goes far beyond the few mentioned. The Enterprise needs to become more even-handed and print the comments and concerns of the wide variety of community members, instead of focusing on and reflecting personal opinions of its new editor Sebastian Oñate so often on its Forum page.
Further, it is inexcusable that the Enterprise's publishers would tolerate the condescending comments posted by its new editor, Sebastian Oñate (on Twitter) ridiculing Davis community members and their submitted writings to the Enterprise. His predecessor, Debbie Davis, was a professional who respected all opinions, regardless of whether she agreed with them or not, and would never have behaved so unprofessionally and disrespectfully towards the community.
This is clearly not the case with the new editor, who apparently has discarded and ridiculed submitted community commentary which he did not agree with, and the community never got to read that commentary because he simply would not publish it. This issue, as well as other inappropriate behavior by Oñate, was well covered in a previous Davisite article recently: http://www.davisite.org/2018/06/inappropriate-behavior-from-the-editor-of-the-davis-enterprise.html/
I have been a Davis Enterprise subscriber for more than 25 years but I am very disappointed and very concerned about the actions and direction that the Enterprise has taken since Debbie Davis left. Everything Debbie did for so many years to gain a good reputation for the Enterprise is being lost with the new editor. It would be tragic for the Enterprise to end, but if it does not restore its editorial professionalism and fairness that Debbie Davis maintained for so many years, the Enterprise is hurting not only itself and its future, but the Davis community.
