    Sounds like you’re a little bitter to the Left Angeles Times.
    Very ironic Teddy.

    So, should this be moved off the “Editorial Cartoons” section and into the “Self-Absorbed Whining” section?

    Don’t you like it when he goes after two of your favorites, big business and the police? Can’t you see the forest because of the trees (oh, wait-I forgot-trees are for clear cutting)? He’s making a larger point. Try thinking instead of just reacting and you might figure it out.

    “We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men — not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate and to defend causes that were, for the moment, unpopular.”

    I sense a Lenny Bruce breakdown without the drugs.

    I see Ted Rall using his medium to report on the LA Times’ hypocrisy. That he happens to be what is being reported on, too, is, well, incidental. Since it is HIS livelihood being threatened (his reputation etc), I don’t see why not.
    I wish him every success.

    The LAPD used to have an undercover department to spy on political radicals and disrupt them, or maybe they still do.

    Make it a racially or sexually related issue and they will be right on it.

    The last several strips prove your point exactly.

    There is more to that dinner than steak. They are really going out to drink. They may not even eat those steaks with all of the booze they are going to consume.

    Ted: I admire your dedication. it’s not “self absorbed” to look out for the truth or yourself

    ConserveGov said,…. the Left Angeles Times…
    .
    In The beginning, the L.A. Times was directed at Republican readers. In 1882 H.G. Otis took over the paper and made it a financial success. The Times would often sit on stories for several days, notably including the 1884 victory of Democratic presidential candidate Grover Cleveland.
    .
    H.G. Otis was a businessman “capable of manipulating the entire apparatus of politics and public opinion for his own enrichment”. Otis’s editorial policy was based on civic booster-ism, extolling the virtues of Los Angeles and promoting its growth.
    .
    The efforts of the Times to fight local unions led to the October 1, 1910, bombing of its headquarters, killing twenty-one people.
    .
    Tribune Publishing Company currently owns the L.A. Times. Former Wall Street investment banker Austin Beutner the publisher and chief executive of the L. A. Times. Beutner described himself as “a Los Angeles booster” but also a supporter of “editorial independence.” He said he does not see those roles as contradictory. “The role of the paper is pretty clear. We’re the civic conscience. If we don’t ask the hard questions, who will?”
    .
    Ted Rall is asking some hard questions. Will Beutner answer?
