Spotted moments ago on Ed Pagett’s twitter stream, a 40 year subscriber has written a letter blasting Sam Zell and begging him to sell the paper to someone who actually cares about it. Jack McGrath writes:
“I have been a loyal and satisfied Times subscriber for over 40 years. I like the book section, the Sunday opinion pages, the Highway section, the columnists, and the look of the paper. I do not support what you are doing to the LA Times.
Please do all of us a really big favor in Los Angeles. Make an offer to sell the paper to a real LA Lover- such as Richard Riordan, Eli Broad, or David Geffen…”
He goes on to ask other subscribers to write similar letters. See the full letter on Ed’s blog.
