Bee coverage of Grey Davis is off color

Soon after the November election, the Fresno Bee runs a story on the 30-person transition committee appointed by Governor-Elect Grey Davis to help him fill on his appointed jobs. The Bee did not list the 30 names. It cited only a handful of San Joaquin Valley selections headed by rich Republican John Harris a large farmer. Plus a few legislators. When Elfie read this story, he opined, Looks like the same old political game - cutting out the poor and liberals... However, a few days later he got an e-mail from the United Farm Workers Union reporting that their president, Artie Rodriguez, was one of the 30 appointees...

How come the Bee overlooked the union¿?
