Investigative author Caitlin Rother amplifies her remarks on DeMaio

Reality check. Various smear campaign internal emails are here: bit.ly/XfeDQQ and here: http://bit.ly/XfeBsi. Via the U-T. I know why other media in town ignored the smear campaign's allegations and insinuations about DeMaio's partner: They were gay-baiting, ancient and irrelevant. Why did the Reader not report them?

Copley foundation's steep fall from grace

Landis was tried and acquitted in connection with the Twilight Zone filming deaths. http://articles.latimes.com/1987-05-29/news/mn-... In Copley's defense, the U-T avoided layoffs much longer than many other papers in the late 2000s. And while he certainly lived a jet-setter lifestyle, he was clearly a very generous man. When it comes to wealthy newspaper publishers, we could have done a whole lot worse. And perhaps we will.
