Tensions Rise Between the Los Angeles Times Staff and Its Billionaire Owner

From a story on politico.com by Daniel Lippman, Christopher Cadelago, and Max Tani headlined “Tensions rise between the LA Times and its billionaire owner”:

This past May, a young reporter for the Los Angeles Times working a weekend shift filed a 190-word story about people suspected of stealing expensive watches before fleeing in a black Rolls-Royce.

The item by Jeong Park enraged activists. They were upset not by the crime, but by how the Times framed the incident in West Hollywood. Online, advocates pushing to slash police budgets derided it as a “press release” for law enforcement.
