Voice of OC Editor in Chief Norberto Santana got caught on video this week confusing Santa Ana temp City Manager Kevin O’Rourke with California Republican Congressman Kevin McCarthy! Check out the video above.
Norberto was blowing a gasket about the mess in Santa Ana, and admitted that his friends on the City Council are to blame for wasting time going after Paul Walters, our former City Manager. He explains that this is why they blew their own deadline regarding the city budget deliberations.
Listen carefully as Norberto pontificates. He says “um” about as much as Council Member Michele Martinez. And in between his segments he has a strange pout on his face.
I pretty much lost respect for this guy when he attacked Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido’s kids during last year’s mayoral campaign. Norberto ran a story that he knew to be false – that the LA Times and OC Register declined to cover. I can not forgive him for that. It was the ultimate low blow and certainly not what I would expect from a “real” journalist.
That he cannot figure out the difference between our overpaid temp city manager and a Republican Congressman is pretty funny. That this is now captured forever on YouTube is priceless!
