No criticism or introspection whatsoever is ever found around or near Gavin Newsom. 🙁

Sickening propaganda interview from this past January 19, 2017!
Total pandering by Billboard’s “reporter” K.M. McFarland.
example: Strolling through San Francisco’s Soma neighborhood, it’s clear that Newsom is a hometown hero.
According to the article, he has a habit of doing this!
In a pandering interview with San Francisco Magazine, Gavin Newsom relates:
My friend Marc Benioff (12) got me to start meditating.
Huh…so you and Benioff are, like, out there in the woods in Marin—
No, it was just in conversation. He gave me the space to not think meditating was, uh, odd. He was commenting about how some of his closest and most successful friends, some well-known people, all share that in common. And I said, “Really?” I remember it was just this sort of aha moment, where all of a sudden I didn’t think it strange. I thought maybe it was essential. And for the last two, two and a half years, I’ve been very devoted to it. And it’s been profound for me.
Is he a TMer?
Nancy Fraser pins the Gavin Newsom ideology down in this excellent article!
“The result was a “progressive neoliberalism” that mixed together truncated ideals of emancipation and lethal forms of financialization.”
Exactly what Gavin Newsom did as mayor of San Francisco!
John Stauber in CounterPunch paints a perfect portrait of the “progressive” politics of Gavin Newsom!
“The professional Progressive Movement that we see reflected in the pages of The Nation magazine, in the online marketing and campaigning of MoveOn and in the speeches of Van Jones, is primarily a political public relations creation of America’s richest corporate elite, the so-called 1%, who happen to bleed Blue because they have some degree of social and environmental consciousness, and don’t bleed Red. But they are just as committed as the right to the overall corporate status quo, the maintenance of the American Empire, and the monopoly of the rich over the political process that serves their economic interests.”
