Why Change Was Needed At The Los Angeles Times

I will adddress later the forced resignation of Dean Baquet who worked hard to make the LA Times a better newspaper and how in many ways, he accomplished that.

But the major unsolved problem of the LA Times is that it simply refuses to be a paper that focuses on... Los Angeles. And that is depressingly clear when one looks at the LA Times website tonight. Long after the Daily News has full front page coverage on the two major propositions facing Los Angeles voters, there is still not a single word - or even a link - to any story covering the results of those Los Angeles races in the Los Angeles Times.

Unfortunately, even after all these months and all the critics telling him that - Dean Baquet never quite got that message.
