Thanks for posting this link. The full Voice-related excerpt from the NYT article:
Reaction from city residents in the comment section of the local newspaper, The Mountain View Voice, fell into two camps. A comment under the name "a nony mouse" said: "Google is funding Mtn View police and firemen and schools and free internet. Don't bite the hand that feeds you."
But another commenter calling himself "Thom, a resident of the Shoreline West neighborhood," wrote: "This isnít Google View, this is Mountain View. I urge the members of the council to tell Google we are not going to bend to their threats."
It all comes from this Town Square discussion: Web Link

"A new high in journalistic standards."
The "major" media has been going down for a long time. News is based on perception rather than reality. And I'm sure that my quote in the article does in fact does represent a lot of citizens that have lived in Mountain View for a majority of our lives. It is our city and our voices should and do make a difference.
