LA Times Media Critic David Shaw Dead At 62,0,5221127.story?coll=la-home-headlines

Long time LA Times writer - best known as the LAT's resident media critic, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize, died tonight of a brain tumor. While he took a lot of more or less good natured kidding about his recent statement that bloggers could not attain the degree of accuracy that the LA Times did with its five layers of filters and editors, that never diminished the respect most of us had for his passion about journalism, the Los Angeles Times, and Los Angeles.

The linked story does an excellent job covering his career and his life. I have nothing to add other than my condolences to his family and his friends.
