Buel: Errors in Coverage of East Bay Express Sale

East Bay Express editor and new co-owner Stephen Buel wrote to AAN late Friday afternoon to let us know that the Berkeley Daily Planet's characterization of the paper's new ownership structure was wrong. He also complained that the Daily Planet's "selective quotation of (his) comments," may have led people to mistaken conclusions regarding the paper's former owners at Village Voice Media. "Under their guidance, the Express enlarged its editorial staff, professionalized its reporting, sharpened its news coverage, and tightened its writing," Buel says. "In fact, they are the best employers I've ever had."
