  1. Most pictures included in the stories on the Eastsider do not match! This is a prime example!! The title of this link is the 5 freeway and Mariachi Plaza. So naturally the picture included is titled ECHO PARK!

    Why not a picture of the Mariachi Plaza or the 5 freeway or Atwater Village, near where the accident on the 5 occurred?

  2. Hi. The photos obviously have nothing to do with the rest of the news links and notes in our Morning Reports. They are standalone images that happen to catch our eye and reflect the communities we cover.

    • The point of my comment, which you clearly missed, is that the photos SHOULD have something to do with the news links and notes!
