Ask a Mexican Chides NYT

New, 12 comments

Predictably, here comes the backlash against the New York Times SoCal foreclosure story. Gustavo Arellano, Ask a Mexican guy: "The Moreno Valley is now the poster child for American housing gone wrong, and the New York Times weighed in with one of their stock magisterial pieces, the kinds that read purty but don't say jack shit about reality...It's not an area "filled with people priced out of Los Angeles and Orange Counties, or looking to escape louder, less-safe cities," as the Times notes; it's a place for fools who weren't smart enough to buy a house in Calimesa. Shit, even Beaumont is better than Moreno Valley, and Beamount is sketchy." [Village Voice]
