Los Angeles controlling
As a consequence of the changes made in the Tribune Co. bankruptcy case, the Washington bureau of the Los Angeles Times will once again be controlled by the Los Angeles Times, LA Observed reports. When Sam Zell took over the paper, the huge Times bureau merged with the smaller Chicago Tribune's bureau, and much of the editorial control was handed to the Chicago bosses. In the two years since, many of the Times' most experienced reporters abandoned ship, leaving a much smaller bureau in DC to serve the Tribune chain.
