Santa Barbara News-Press


Factual Reporting: UNKNOWN

Notes: The Santa Barbara News-Press is a daily newspaper in Southern California, publishing since 1855. According to a NYT article, Wendy McCaw is the owner of the paper since the year 2000. In 2006, McCaw was accused of interfering with the newsroom editorial judgment at the News-Press.  According to an L.A. Times article, “Five editors and a columnist resigned over the controversy” and according to Politico, the News-Press endorsed Donald Trump: “These Are the Only 6 Newspapers in the Country to Endorse Donald Trump”. The paper includes news stories, local news, national and world news, sports, editorials and classified coverage, however in order to view those articles they require a subscription. Online monthly registration is $0.20 per day or $6.00 per month, therefore, we cannot review this paper’s content. Hopefully the background history will shed some light on the political direction of this source. (M. Huitsing 8/17/2017)
