This article originally appeared on May 27, 2018. I am reposting it in light of a recent and blatant violation of the exact kind that I criticized here. On March 25, 2019, I wrote an article entitled, "City Council Out of Step on Parking, Roads, Housing, and the Claw: Will it Impact the 2020 Council Race?" . On March 30, 2019, David Greenwald wrote an article entitled, "My View: Some Are Saying the Council is Out of Step – Let’s Have a Look." If you compare the two articles, it is obvious that Greenwald was responding to me, yet he never mentions me or the Davisite. Instead, he refers vaguely to "some people."
In other words, the Davis Vanguard continues to violate the basic principles of journalistic ethics.
Recently, the Davis Vanguard has been discussing articles from the Davisite without citing them. This is, in my opinion, a violation of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) Code of Ethics. It also hampers the ability of a community to engage in informed discussion.
