Recall War's Over, But LAT Battle Rages On


On Sunday, Los Angeles Times Editor John Carroll responded, if rather testily, to some of the heavy (and occasionally foaming) criticism levied against the paper for its Schwarzengroping coverage. The main target of his wrath, though she went unnamed, was ex-Times firebrand Jill Stewart. Today Stewart fires back, in a column that includes juicy anonymous testimony from a Times staffer. For a sensible outside perspective, start with Jay Rosen. Between the three, you get an interesting picture of an influential newspaper's inner workings.
