LA Times Watch ^

The soup thickens... Tribune, the parent company of the LA Times and many other US newspapers, has found inflated circulation numbers at two of its papers, and is reviewing circulation accounting procedures at all of its papers including the LA Times

And lots of newspapers are run by liberal editorial and business staffs......

Funny.

When the lawyers are crooked democrat supporters, we don't hear about it in the newspapers.

When the politicians are crooked democrat supporters, we don't hear about it in the newspapers.

When the ministers are crooked (cheating, homosexual)democrat supporters, we don't hear about it in the newspapers.

When the newspaper writers are crooked democrat supporters, we don't hear about it in from the other news media, and in the newspapers.

THIS IS A VICTORY FOR THE THREE HEADED RAT EATER!!!!!
The three headed rat eater is the Net, Talk radio and Fox News. Just a few years ago we would NEVER see this story. OH, of course nothing will come from this ( beung a rat means never having to face the music), but that's not the point. Just the fact that we know about this is the start of the nextstage of decline in ratmedia power!

I don't know, but I do know that if I had been stupid enough to buy advertising from the LA Times in the last few years or if I had been stupid enough to buy stock in their company, I'd be looking for a lawyer to sue their pants off. Inflating circulation numbers knowing that those numbers will be used to sell advertising and to boost the value of their stock is criminal. Somebody needs to go to jail. This is no different than Enron.
