    The video starts out with a lesbian like woman stating how angry she is at the turnout at a southern California Chick Fil A, and then comes the "it's a redneck convention", by whom I think is her daughter, and then it is selected interviews to put conservatives in a bad light. A new Brian Williams/Dan Rather in the making.

    NORTH HOLLYWOOD -- Two people were shot dead and five others were wounded by gunfire in three separate shootings Tuesday night that had police searching neighborhoods door to door for gunmen, finding one suspect in a backyard.

About an hour earlier, a man was shot in Northridge by a gunman riding with a number of men in a car near Wilbur Avenue and Parthenia Street, said LAPD Lt. Bill Maarschalk. His...

    After more than a half-century, NBC Universal is dropping the curtain on "beautiful downtown Burbank." The media company plans to announce Thursday that it is selling much of the 30 acres it owns in Burbank, including its legendary NBC Studios at 3000 W. Alameda Ave., home to such iconic programs as "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and before that, "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson." NBC Universal intends to relocate the network and local news operations that are in Burbank to a new headquarters in a massive complex planned on Lankershim Boulevard, across the street from its Universal Studios...

    I just witnessed a car chase from the FOX helicopter feed around where I live. It was fast around Roscoe Blvd., Owensmouth Ave, De Soto Ave, etc. and ended on Topanga Blvd. where Chatsworth Park is near the hills. 12 police cars came by to stop it. Those were airborne videos. Note that this is near very dark. There is a ground video of men and women coming to the noise wondering WTF? I only take a lady to a beach in Ventura that makes hearts quiet.

    Saying they're under a state of siege, Los Angeles police vowed Tuesday to call in other law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and county Probation Department, to combat escalating gang violence in the San Fernando Valley. The efforts, which include a broad strategy to disrupt gang crime, come less than a week after a 15-year-old was shot to death in a drive-by attack in North Hollywood. It was the ninth gang-related homicide in North Hollywood this year and the 39th in the Valley. "What we know about gangs is that it has an elasticity that if you attack at one...

    Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa was taking his first ride Monday on the Metro Orange Line to promote safety around the busway when suddenly the driver hit the brakes, narrowly avoiding a motorist who apparently ran a red light at Kester Avenue. It was a real-life, real-time example of what officials are seeing repeated across the San Fernando Valley as buses practice for Saturday's opening. For the mayor and others on board, it underscored the need for motorists and pedestrians to be careful. "For San Fernando Valley residents who've waited for their share of transportation improvements, the Orange Line is a down...
