Who's the ranter and who's the scribe?

Kim VanKirk Thompson at FB:
"After all the money that Granada Hills Charter School spent to get people out to vote for their plan with billboards, signs, emails, glossy mailers and robocalls, out of 3946 people who voted, they only beat Local District 1 by 72 votes! No landslide there. I hope the School Board recognizes that GHCHS outspent, but couldn't drum up more support."
Jill Stewart at LA Weekly:
"El Camino Real is abandoning LA Mummified. Reporter Connie Llanos at the Los Angeles Daily News quotes affable but essentially gutless School Board member Tamar Galatzan warning that the loss should "sound the alarm bell." Your bell, maybe, Tamar?"
So we ask you: who is the ranter and who's the seasoned scribe?

Who is doing responsible reporting and news analysis for the sake of informing readers the true nature of a recent charter election, and who is repackaging agitprop to suit her own vindictive agenda?

Who sounds like a longstanding media figure, and who sounds like a ranting clownessa beholden to a strife of corporate interests?

Giving it away here: the ceaselessly self-aggrandizing Stewart adds:
Galatzan and her colleagues should probably attend the Los Angeles Press Club's March 24 panel (which I'll be moderating) featuring Felch, Song and Smith, at which they'll explain "How We Got The Story."
I think I'll stick with Facebook that night. I might actually learn something. I already know what's happening at a panel featuring four teacher-vilifying corporate hacks.
