David Geffen, Call Patterico

Holllywood and music mogul David Geffen recently offered $2 billion to the Tribune Company for the Los Angeles Times. Tribune has put him off for a while as they want to sell the entire company and not just its components, but perhaps Geffen should reconsider the bid. If you read Patterico, it's obvious that the LA Times is overpriced:

It is time for this blog’s fourth annual review of the performance of the Los Angeles Times, which long-time Patterico readers know as the Los Angeles Dog Trainer. The first annual review was posted here. The second annual review was posted in two parts, here and here. The third annual review was posted here.

This year’s installment covers a number of topics, including the Michael Hiltzik sock-puppetry controversy; the alleged Ramadi airstrike; the paper’s decision to reveal the Swift counterterror program; the firing of the paper’s editor and publisher; the Iraq war and the war on terror; the paper’s shilling for Democrats during the 2006 election; and my decision to cancel the paper — among many others.

This post summarizes an entire year’s worth of work documenting omissions, distortions, and misrepresentations by this newspaper. I have made an effort to document my arguments that this paper is a regular practitioner of liberal bias. As with my previous posts, the proof is voluminous. As a consequence, don’t feel that you need to read the entire post in one sitting. Feel free to bookmark it and return to it in the coming days, browsing through the categories as they interest you.

If this post was the newspaper, it would be the Sunday edition. If it was a prizefight, the corner would have thrown in the towel. Read the whole thing, and someone get Geffen an emergency lunch with Patterico.
