Tribune Board Meets as Mutiny at the LA Times Continues

Hosted by

Publisher Jeff Johnson and Editor Dean Baquet still have their jobs, at least for the moment, after a public challenge to LA Times owners at Tribune Publishing in Chicago. Twenty high-profile Los Angeles civic leaders have asked Tribune to improve local coverage or sell the paper. They've been joined by a virtual Times' staff revolt against prospective reductions. Meantime, Los Angeles readers will be seeing bylines from other papers owned by Tribune. Is the paper actually better since Tribune took over? Should the rebellious executives have been fired? What's the atmosphere inside the LA Times?  When will the mutiny come to an end?
