One of the best way to get promoted into upper management with any newspaper organization is to express right-wing or at least decidedly anti-union views. Remember all those Illinois newspapers that endorsed BruceRauner for Illinois Governor?
Well, the LA Times fired left-wing cartoonist Ted Rall after sources at the LAPD released a 15-year-old audio tape of an arrest of Ted Rall. Really.
Now, Rall is a hard guy to like, even if you tend toward the progressive, which I do. But he’s right on this.
