How the Los Angeles Times Handled a Story Becomes the Talk of the Town

From a New York Times story by John Koblin headlined “How Los Angeles Times Handled Expose Becomes the Talk of the Town”:

Five years ago, Paul Pringle and Matthew Doig were on the same team. Mr. Pringle, a veteran reporter at The Los Angeles Times, and Mr. Doig, an editor at the newspaper, were working on an article that would ultimately expose the drug abuse of a powerful former dean at the University of Southern California.

That report would lead to a series of other investigations involving U.S.C., culminating in a Pulitzer Prize for Mr. Pringle and two other reporters in 2019.
