  • Turning Back the Clock

    April 10, 2013 | 11:15 am

    The Los Angeles mayoralty race seems to have devolved into a contest to see which of the candidates can rack up more endorsements.

    Specifically, endorsements aimed at relevant constituencies that might be swayed by the endorser’s identity, reputation, or cache. From Magic Johnson...

  • Choicest of the choice

    By Jonathan Kirsch

    April 18, 2012 | 1:25 pm

    Much has changed in the book business since the Los Angeles Times launched its Festival of Books 17 years ago, but the FOB — as it is fondly known — remains the premier event of the literary calendar for the more than 100,000 readers and writers who never miss it.

    The 2012...

  • What Deportation List? Dueling LA Times Ads Skew Story of Refugee Children in Israel

    By Jonah Lowenfeld

    March 10, 2011 | 10:01 am

    Click here to enlarge.

    “STOP Israel’s deportation of 400 children,” the advertisement in the Saturday, Mar. 5, edition of the Los Angeles Times called out in large type.

    The half-page ad, taken out by the Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA), announced that Israel was...

  • Evidence Mounts in favor of Weight Loss Surgery

    By Albert Fuchs, M.D.

    February 25, 2011 | 3:12 pm

    Readers who have been following my posts for a few years know that weight-loss surgery is amassing an impressive body of scientific evidence supporting its effectiveness and safety. (Links to my previous posts about weight loss surgery are below.)

    This week, two studies in the...

    If you’ve ever heard me give a speech, you’ve heard me tell this story. It’s a good one, with the added quality of being true.

    A few years ago, a reader called my assistant and demanded I return his call immediately.

    I moaned — what editor isn’t used to returning those...

  • Donors Protest Israeli Professor’s Op-ed

    By Adam Wills

    August 26, 2009 | 3:32 pm

    Neve Gordon, the Ben-Gurion University political science professor whose Aug. 20 op-ed in the Los Angeles Times titled “Boycott Israel” described Israel as an “apartheid state,” has drawn protests and threats of cutting off funding for the school by some U.S. donors.

    “The...

  • Ratner not yet keen on “Conan”

    By Danielle Berrin

    November 14, 2008 | 1:16 am

    Thanks to a leak by producer Avi Lerner and premature reporting by the LA Times, the assumption that Brett Ratner would direct the “Conan” film franchise is just that—presumptuous and untrue.

    Sort of. Apparently, budget negotiations are still being hammered out and Ratner insists...

  • Eating Bambi, Zell again, Bergson, broken heart

    August 14, 2008 | 1:45 am

    Agriprocessors

    I was relieved to learn that Rabbi Dovid Eliezrie of Chabad of Yorba Linda found that the working conditions and safety benefits at the Agriprocessors plant were "above par" ("Eating Bambi," Aug. 8).

    Has he done a comprehensive survey of meatpacking plants in the...
  • Zell it, Sam; Cool it, Orit; 40 million Frenchmen

    August 7, 2008 | 12:06 am





    Sell It, Sam

    Nice editorial on the demise of the L.A. Times as we have known it and loved to hate it all these years ("Sell It, Sam," Aug. 1).

    Didn't anyone realize when Sam Zell bought the Tribune Co. that real estate value was at the top of his list?

    And as to the problems of...
  • Sell it, Sam

    By Rob Eshman

    July 30, 2008 | 11:39 pm

    First they came for the Outdoor section, and I said nothing. Then they combined and demoted the Opinion and Book Review sections, and I said nothing.

    Then they sloughed off hundreds of journalists, and I said nothing. Then they fired another 150 writers and editors, took away the...

  • Keeping it fair and balanced at the Los Angeles Times

    By Amy Klein

    January 31, 2008 | 7:00 pm

    As the Los Angeles Times' editor of the Op-Ed page and Sunday Opinion section, Nicholas Goldberg oversees publication of about four opinion pieces per day and eight to twelve on Sundays. The most volatile topic on those pages by far -- even more than the war in Iraq, the election...
  • L.A. Times gives indicted Hamas leader a soapbox for lies

    By Tamar Sternthal

    July 19, 2007 | 8:00 pm

    Op-Ed contributors to the Los Angeles Times are an eclectic bunch, including novelists, historians, policymakers, humorists, activists, and most recently, genocidal terrorists. On July 10, 2007, Mousa Abu Marzook, "the deputy of the political bureau of Hamas," authored an Op-Ed full...
  • The Times, it is a-changin’

    By Bill Boyarsky

    February 1, 2007 | 7:00 pm

    How many times have you unsuccessfully tried to interest the Los Angeles Times in an important organizational event or, harder yet, tried to get the paper to devote some space to articles reflecting your views on an issue?

    Suppose for example, your synagogue is hosting a discussion...

  • L.A. Times violates journalistic ethics in Anaheim City Council election coverage

    By Steven Emerson

    October 19, 2006 | 8:00 pm

    Normally, a race for a seat on Anaheim's City Council garners little attention beyond Anaheim. But this year, one candidate is drawing some outside attention.

    Bill Dalati, a Syrian-born insurance agent, is running for a spot on Anaheim's City Council. His candidacy has come under...

  • Journalists Behaving Badly

    By Sheldon Teitelbaum

    May 24, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Shortly before or perhaps just after World War II, actor Kirk Douglas asked Dorothy Buffum Chandler why the Los Angeles Times seemed to pander so wantonly to the anti-Semitism then still rampant among many of the city's more refined elites.

    "Why, darling?" cooed the doyenne of the...

  • Everyone Loves a Wandering Jew

    By Jonathan Kellerman

    May 24, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    It was more than a bit jarring to flip to the Los Angeles Times May 5 opinion-editorial pages and be confronted by a Magen David displayed prominently above the lead editorial, topped by the banner, "Rebuilding the Temple."

    This is the Los Angeles Times we're talking about, a paper...
