It's not only KCRW; The Times opinion blog has taken up the matter of our complaints about a media cone of silence enveloping the Mayoral election, four days from today. (They'd rather talk about the coverage than an actual candidate, but never mind that).
At this point, I'm so fed up with the coverage I'm just curious to see if Yvonne Villarreal will moderate a comment I left on the matter. If you've found the coverage of the Mayor's race wanting, nows a good time to drop a comment over there and let the Times know how you feel.
As for the mapping project...it just looks like a pageview bumper to me. You know where you live, don't you?
