Tribune Sells Out to Vernon

The Los Angeles Times reports that former state Attorney General John Van De Kamp believes he was misled about how his "interview" would be used--he says he thought it was a legitimate interview, when it was actually a set up by Vernon to place quotes to support their position against being dis-incorporated by state law.

The other "local" papers (owned by the group that puts out the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the Pasadena Star-News, the Los Angeles Daily News, and the Long Beach Press-Telegram, among others), made no mention of this controversy. They did, however, find the space to repeat many of the claims included in Vernon's paid advertisement.

Yep, the best coverage money can buy.
