The Chronicle’s Phil Matier and Andrew Ross scratch around for an angle today on the hubbub over the “Run, Ed, Run” campaign and offer up a backstory yarn about Aaron Peskin getting everybody worked up. As if to say thanks for making the mayor’s race a bit less boring. Scant mention of their fellow Chronicle columnist whose space abuts theirs—except in the most obvious way imaginable:
Now that Lee looks poised to announce, it’s jump ball, and everything from his ties to [Rose] Pak and former Mayor Willie Brown—and to nonprofits with city contracts that might have connections to his campaign—will instantly become fair game.
Noted: At some point, probably not soon, when the newspaper’s management regains its ethical balance, one presumes Brown can go back to merely being a tipster.
