New York Times draws fury for explaining LA to Angelenos

The New York Times yesterday published a front page story that portrayed Southern California as a place of aimless urban sprawl, no civic institutions, and a newspaper in turmoil. Angelenos used choice words to bash the article on Twitter. Some pointed out factual errors. Others said it was another example of The New York Times describing LA as an inferior city.
