Monorail Cost Overrun Claims Debunked

Josh Feit criticizes The Seattle Times' editorial and coverage of Seattle Monorail project.

"It turns out that the Seattle Times was running screamer headlines and finger-wagging editorials about an initial monorail bid that was potentially $250 million below what voters approved. The headline could have been, "Monorail bid starts out $250 million below voter-approved price." Instead, the [Seattle] Times, not even knowing where the bid stands today, scared voters with a misleading front-page story and an ill-informed editorial."
