For Weary Rank-and-Filers at the Los Angeles Times, A Survivor’s Mentality Has Set In

Recent life at the Los Angeles Times suggests the strained plot lines found in cliché-filled grade-B melodramas sometimes covered by its TV critic, Mary McNamara.

In a single year, the newsroom has seen:

  • The publisher bounced amid feuding with the company.
  • The company CEO himself then ousted shortly after inviting a tech mogul to buy a chunk of the operation.
  • A big purchase thwarted by government lawyers.
  • A hostile takeover of the company spurned by the tech mogul.
  • The tech mogul inviting a doctor-turned-healthcare Croesus to help save him with an even bigger investment.
  • Lots of talk by the hyperkinetic new boss of artificial intelligence and music coverage in Nigeria, bolstering the company’s editorial brands.
  • The stock price fluctuating as at least two major shareholders protest rejection of the takeover.
