L.A. TIMES WATCH: Reader Curt Wilson writes:

A couple interesting tidbits with respect to the LA Times:

Sunday, there was an Israeli Independence Day rally/celebration in LA. Police estimate 60,000 people showed up (amazing for LA). Both Gov. Gray Davis and his challenger Bill Simon show up to speak, as well as Mayor Hahn. The LA Times prints NOT ONE WORD about it.

This morning, on page 3, the Times shows a picture of a dead Palestinian “collaborator” being dragged through the streets of the West Bank. The second sentence of the caption states that “a lack of security has led to an increase in vigilantism”. So, you see, these killings too are Israel’s fault…

Yeah, what Los Angeles needs is a new, competing newspaper to inject some competition and honesty into that market!
