FROM THIS EPISODE

The City of Los Angeles will pay $24 million for the wrongful murder convictions of two men who spent years of their lives in prison because of proven misconduct by the LAPD. The City Attorney says going to court would cost even more.

Later on the program, California's Republican Party is a shadow of what it was when WWLA first went on the air 23 years ago. Its dramatic decline resulted, in part, from perceived hostility toward Latinos. Are GOP presidential candidates now leading the national party in a familiar direction?

The City of LA Pays Millions to Wrongfully Convicted Men 8 MIN, 58 SEC

The LA City Council has agreed to pay $24 million to settle lawsuits by two men whose wrongful convictions for murder cost them years of their lives in prison. In a memo obtained by the LA Times, the City Attorney’s office called one case "extremely dangerous" and said the other was even "more problematic." Matt Lait is City Editor of the Times and a long-time police and investigative reporter.

California Republicans on the Verge of Irrelevancy 14 MIN, 58 SEC

As Which Way, LA? winds down after 23 years, we're looking back at what's changed… and what hasn't. Back in the day, the Republican Party was going strong. In 1993, Republican Richard Riordan was elected Mayor of Los Angeles. The year after that, Republican Governor Pete Wilson was running for re-election.
