Skip to comments.L.A. Jail Bars N.Y. Times Reporter Who Was Let In to Speak With Pellicano

The Metropolitan Detention Center in Los Angeles has barred a New York Times reporter from the facility for allegedly misrepresenting herself in an effort to interview Anthony Pellicano, the celebrity detective at the center of a Hollywood wiretapping scandal.
Allison Hope Weiner, who has written about the Pellicano case, got into the jail last month after presenting a State Bar of California card and asking to speak with the investigator. Weiner, who earned a degree 20 years ago from the USC law school, is registered with the California bar but has never done legal work for Pellicano or the New York Times.
Michael Benov, warden of the detention center, issued an order in February saying that, for security reasons, no one could visit Pellicano except his lawyer or immediate family. After learning that Weiner was admitted to a room in the jail where prisoners meet with their lawyers, Benov ordered an investigation.
Guards brought Pellicano from his cell to the meeting room, but he refused to talk to Weiner after learning that she was a reporter.

I find that hard to believe! [/s]
Thats ok, she can say she met with him. The rest would have been made up regardless if they had actually spoken to each other.
NYT? nah... you don't say... who would have tought... unfreakingbelievable!
The New York Times has a code of ethics? Who knew?
Jayson Blair in a dress...same difference.
Yes, but WHAT were they trying to 'strike' and for WHOM?
I would love to have a Hillary download from this guy, and I don't particularly care who gets it, or how.
I sure hope he gets a book deal before 08!
He won't sell out his Dem clients, especially Hillary. I'm sure he's familiar with the concept of 'Arkancide'.
That's what I was wondering. Maybe it was to check if Pellican is still 'gonna keep his yap shut... or to coordinate an upcoming revelation. You hear Pellicano... you think ROTham.
The L.A. Times has used buckets of ink to cover the Pellican story and yet the name Clinton has never appeared. I keep waiting.
This may interest you, though maybe nothing new.
I found the NYT vs. LAT re: Pellicano very interesting...
lots of goodies, scroll down.
Just like their code of ethics spelled out after the Blair Affair courtesy the Seagal Committee... in view of NYT's reporting... i'd say they burned it.
Hey ox... enjoy the spin.
This says Weiner didn't mis-represent herself... even though we know only his lawyer and family were allowed to visit. They really think we're rubes... awaiting Times official response (even though at this point, contact music seems more credible than the Times) Kidding (cough).
too good for words
For "security reasons".... of course! Mrs. Clinton? Mrs. Clinton. Please pick up the secure red phone...
The New York Times has an ethics code? Does it apply to the NYT's enemies: US miliary personnel, Republicans, Christians or other decent human beings?
Shredded, burned and they put the ashes in the Hudson river.
Thanks for the link!
A lawyer and NY Times reporter! She was a walking lie waiting to happen!
The fish rots from the head at that fish wrap.
Reads as if everyone is beginning to distance themselves from the New York Slimes...Interesting to see that even LA Times is beginning to rat out the New York Slimes.
This is NOT a surprise.
A. I went to Law Scool. The message in all the classes was "Get rid of your conscience--It only gets in the way of a good job"
B.In the last 5 years, the MSM has repeatedly been exposed for their lies.
