Eye on Miami takes on the Miami Herald's vacuous coverage of traffic and everything else. These guys have 20-20 vision:
We don't know who the cheerleaders are or what their fluff sessions at One Herald Plaza sound like, or the steady chatter from the outside that persuades executives and editors that its readers are too immature to face the ugly truths about our communities on a regular basis.
Take today's editorial, "Unclogging the roads", for instance. What is the great opportunity for applause? "Broad support" at a recent Miami Chamber of Commerce for re-timing traffic lights, a website, and "a long list of other ideas."
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
