CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF ARCATA NEWS, OCTOBER 10, 2006
by Cash ULT
In his story, “People & Grizz 1,Tad 0 in tethering challenge – Oct. 10, 2006,” Kevin Hoover cites the eveidence brought before Humboldt County Court that clearly demonstrates that Arcata’s dog-tethering ordinance is selectively enforced against homeless people, then declares a “victory” when Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Dale A. Reinholtsen rules in favor of the police.
Ironically, Hoover insinuates that Griz the dog also shares in this celebration of bigotry, inspite of the fact that this particular form of bigotry could spell his doom. Griz has never expressed any elation that might support Hoover’s ridiculous assertations.
Unsurprisingly, Hoover has used his “newspaper” to distort reality and attempt to rile up more classist bigotry against local activist, tad.
My advice: don’t believe the hype.
