Intolerance: Half of Staff May Quit if Kochs Buy L.A. Times
Here is a fascinating look at our open-minded, objective, unbiased, not-at-all-liberal media:
At a Los Angeles Times in-house awards ceremony last week, columnist Steve Lopez addressed the elephant in the room.
Speaking to the entire staff, he said, "Raise your hand if you would quit if the paper was bought by Austin Beutner's group." No one raised their hands.
"Raise you hand if you would quit if the paper was bought by Rupert Murdoch." A few people raised their hands.
Facing the elephant trunk-on, "Raise your hand if you would quit if the paper was bought by the Koch brothers." About half the staff raised their hands.
These provincial, ideological bigots won't even work for a conservative.
Apparently, too many staffers at the L.A. Times have also deluded themselves with their own propaganda. The media have been working overtime to pretend Obama's failed economic policies are not failed economic policies. Imagine their surprise at the reality of the job market after these bigots walk out on a good-paying gig.
Please Koch Brothers, please, please, please buy these newspapers.
