Who Knew That Ian Faith Edited The L.A. Times?

Certainly, in the topsy-turvy world of heavy journalism, having a good solid b.s. detector in your hand is often useful:

If only AP was as skeptical of the L.A. Times as it is of the Bush Administration …it wouldn’t have left this uncommented upon:

“The number one reason that people cancel the L.A. Times is, they tell us, they don’t have enough time to read the paper that we give them every day,” Stanton said. “We’re going to be more picky about the stories we choose to write long and a lot more picky about the ones we write shorter.”

So the paper’s content, like its popularity, isn’t shrinking, it’s merely becoming more selective.
