Former Berkeley Daily Planet reporter John Geluardi, in a story in this week's East Bay Express , nails the beyond-sloppy Center for Investigative Reporting's "exposé" of maintenance problems in Richmond's Hacienda public housing project.

The Planet first reported on this story on February 26, when it published a 5,000 word rebuttal by Richmond Councilmember Tom Butt citing numerous errors and omissions in the CIR piece, which was picked up by the Chronicle and KQED--see today's editorial for more.
