“On Assignment” = “We Now Bring You A Big Fat Lie”
Ed Driscoll has a post leading to a Kevin Roderick post on machinations at the Los Angeles Times that should make the “journalists” there resign, or at the very least blush. What a melt-down. Spiking a very interesting column is a flare signaling that the paper is in the grip of rigor mortis. The Times is in rapid collapse because of the inability of its aging and out-of-touch senior staff to grasp that the world has changed.
If the Tribune Company feels even the slightest allegiance to its shareholders, it will sack the Times’ management and most of the editorial department and start over. How a virtual monopoly can will itself into irrelevance is amazing, but we see it unfolding daily in L.A.
