Him and His Big Mouth

Even though The Los Angeles Times featured VP pal Barbara Bestor on the cover of its Home section today, there's clearly a lot going wrong in the other divisions of one of the nation's largest newspapers and one of the last to still have a bureau in Baghdad. Thanks to the ubiquitous presence of digital audio recording devices, journalists from other news organizations have revealed embarrassing confrontations involving the controversial owner of the Times Sam Zell.

NPR media-reporter David Folkenflik explains how a "Recording Shows Tribune Owner's Fiery Side" in one story, while Gawker uses video footage that shows how "Sam Zell Says 'Fuck You' To His Journalist."

Of course, no one's listening to my suggestions for how to save the LA Times.
