After a series of discussions between CalWatchdog staff and Jeff Young, the deputy director of public affairs for the state Department of General Services, we’ve decided that the premise of our recent story “State selling property at below-market rates” is flawed. As a result, we’ve pulled the story from our website, so that we may conduct further reporting on the issue.

CalWatchdog regrets the error.

    Since the premise of all your stories seems to be that government is bad, I suspect you will have more of these retractions in the coming months. But I commend you for stepping up and admitting you were wrong on this one.
