NORMAN CHANDLER (THE FAMILY THAT FOUNDED THE LOS ANGELES TIMES) ON THE COVER LIFE – WHEN THE LA TIMES WAS A GREAT NEWSPAPER
SAM ZELL (THE MAN WHO BOUGHT THE LOS ANGELES TIMES). He was called the “L.A. Times wrecking ball…” by the Washington Post.
“For those of you who have not heard, A horrible man named Sam Zell bought the Tribune Co…” Facebook comment by Cubs fan…
Under the direction of Sam Zell, according to Avery St. Martins, prominent San Marino resident: “the Los Angeles Times has gone from bad to worst. Zell is everything that’s wrong with America. He’s destroyed the Los Angeles Times. Zell has no class. He’s as common as those now considered the cultural icons in Los Angeles. Norman Chandler was distinguished, while Zell is everything that’s wrong with America. A horrible man. Send him back to wherever he’s from… which must be from nowhere… And the slimy LA Times charges for their horrendous website.”
