Calvan Didn't Fall Far From The Tree

I've got to head out for a blogging-related trip to South Carolina in a few hours, so I'm going to point you to this delightful article by Armando Acuna, public editor of the Sacramento Bee.

I didn't cover the Bobby Caina Calvan fiasco when it occurred, but the displayed response shows quite a bit of arrogance by Acuna and Mark Seibel, the managing editor in charge of foreign coverage for McClatchy's Washington Bureau.

It seems they've learned nothing.

Update: More from Uncle Jimbo at Blackfive:

Your "reporting" on the war in Iraq is about as real as your "support" for the troops.

Proper identification:Yes.
Arrogance at the Gate:No.

It's now been 4 days without any response from the Public Editor to the readers who have posted their criticisms. Would it be fair to conclude that he's still in full denial mode?
