Comically enough, Rep. Devin Nunes is now accusing the Los Angeles Times of “lazy reporting” and “fake news” (Bee, May 31) for printing remarks he himself made at a private fundraiser in early April.
According to his own chief of staff, Nunes will no longer talk to The Bee’s beat reporter (Bee, April 12). Nunes continues to take a pass on opportunities to talk with his constituents at any sort of town hall event. So why is Nunes snippy when reporters print accurate quotes from private fundraisers – which he does attend?
The L.A. Times coverage is neither “lazy” nor “fake.” But if Nunes wants better coverage, maybe he should expand the conversation beyond his donors.
