“Republican Party of San Diego County launches ‘news’ website for political purposes”

San Diego Union-Tribune:

The San Diego County Republican Party recently launched a new political communications tool that looks like a local news website, albeit a politically right-leaning one.


You wouldn’t know that Sandiegonewsdesk.com was a Republican Party product unless you read the fine print at the bottom of the home page.
As of Tuesday morning, readers who scrolled down the site’s main page, past posts with titles such as, “Governor Newsom and Other Democrats are Worsening the Housing Crisis,” and “City Council Democrats Oppose Job-Creating Commercial Development,” would find a disclaimer at the very bottom of the page that read, “Paid for by the Republican Party of San Diego County.” Also listed are the identification numbers for the party’s state and local political committees and its associated tax-exempt organization.
