LA Times ownership change- expect better Kings coverage?

I had hoped potentially, but I don't think so:

http://www.latimes.com/business/la-e...lines-business

Apparently, Zell's leadership is the value being added in this arrangement. He, however, has said he has no editorial aspirations, that he regards this acquisition as a purely financial opportunity and will leave the current management in place.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

How will readers of the Los Angeles Times be able to tell the difference?

Actually, that's easy and it's very much the point. Over the last five years, this paper's readers have received less and less in the way of news and features provided by fewer and fewer journalists.

Tribune has installed one publisher after another who has said that it is impossible for The Times or any other newspaper to cut its way to success. This has become truer, as it has become more apparent that the simultaneous provision of high quality journalism in print and online is the way forward for newspaper journalism.

And yet the cuts have continued. When the cuts stop and readers are no longer asked to expect and to accept less from their newspaper they'll know the tide has turned.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Think there's any value in starting some kind of write-in campaign from the SoCal hockey fans?

New ownership won't dictate the amount of hockey coverage. The Sports page Editor in Chief determines that.

Right, and it sounds like he's going to leave all the current management in place- so no dice....

Yeah...but a mandate to recind the cuts and provide more coverage by more journalists will presumably effect how all areas of the paper are managed and, as a result, could mean, at the very least, a reinstatement of the Kings coverage that's already been cut.

No. Hockey isn't important enough to get more coverage then what it already gets.

Newspapers are steadily becoming bundles of ads with some articles to support the ads.

Everything's going to the Net.

Agreed. I cancelled my subscription years ago, waste of money.
