    Suspect away, but that’s not true even a little bit.

    Thank you.

    Very true. Spend all your life sucking up to jerks, and tolerating jerkishness, though, and life might become intolerable.

    Thank you, what you said.

    God that’s true. You’d be amazed how many people think they’re the victim of my misery.

    When you’re paid not to hear something, you tend not to hear it.

    Thank you. From your keyboard to God’s ears. This is a nightmare.

    “And the LAPD does not have the pull to give orders to the LA Times.” Really?

    “The rich and powerful City of Los Angeles Department of Fire & Police Pension Fund indirectly owns a hunk of the Times‘ parent company, Tribune Publishing.

    And a precedent has already been established of that same pension fund working to end the careers of journalists by lobbying as their “owners.”

    In 2009 representatives from the LA Fire & Police Fund sent a letter demanding the removal of editors and writers at the San Diego Union-Tribune. The fund managers made it clear in the letter who really owned that newspaper — its debt handler, Beverly Hills Platinum Equity. Not so coincidentally, $30 million of the LA Fire & Police Fund was invested in Platinum at the time.

    In the letter penned by LAPPL President Paul Weber to Platinum demanding the firing of the San Diego journalists, he wrote:

    Since the very public employees they continually criticize are now their owners, we strongly believe that those who currently run the editorial pages should be replaced.”

    In May it was announced that the San Diego Union-Tribune was sold to Tribune Publishing.

    Note that the single largest owner of Tribune Publishing is another ultra-wealthy LA investment vehicle, Oaktree Capital. Oaktree manages an estimated $18.4 billion in Los Angeles Fire & Police pension funds."

    No pull? Really?
