FreetardoRivera: you sound gay
adamatari: It's not about money in the LA Times, it's about influence. Own the media, you own the public's perception, you influence elections, everything. LA Times may not do well, but other Kock industries benefit.The Koch brothers have been playing this game a long time. There are plenty of people in LA that are amenable to a right-wing message, if presented well - LA is famous for the car culture, for example, and OF COURSE green "weenies" want to take away your cars, right? Once you get people thinking like that, even if they stay democratic it pulls the party strongly to the right.Buying influence is easy if you have the money. It's not just contributing to campaigns, it's funding the research that supports your ideology, it's owning the news that promotes your ideology, it's a lot of things that add up. Get it in people's heads and they will sell your message for you, to their own detriment.
MaxxLarge: Sure. Because the best way to revive a dying fourth-estate institution is to jerk the wheel hard right in the largest, most liberal and ethnically-diverse city in the largest blue state in the country. THAT'LL help circulation. They're only doing this so they can shrug and throw up their hands in a year, shrug, and say, "Hey, we tried," and then write a few billion off on their already-at-0% taxes.On the upside, I'm sure if you hooked up a few wires to the ends of Otis Chandler's casket, the high-RPM spin it'll start doing might generate enough power to help with the rolling blackouts, so there's that.
