I read the NYTs article this was based on and couldn't disagree more with their premises.    So, kindly f*ck off, NYTs.   You stick with your city and leave ours alone.

LAT column reply is actually really good:

...This is going to be a column, instead, about something slightly different: about the legibility (and illegibility) of cities more generally. About how we react - as reporters and critics and simply as people - when we're confronted with a city that doesn't make sense to us right away.

People generally don't "get" L.A. because it doesn't fit expectations or simple explanations.  I understand that.  It's part of why I like the place.

I worked for the LA Times back in the late 80's, just around the time the Chandler family decided to bring in 'professional management'

Otis Chandler was officially retired by that point, but he'd still show up once in a while to kick some ass and take names. He was an amazing guy. The first time I'd met him, I was just a lowly IT nerd who spent 2 minutes fixing his email. I met him again 6 months later at the company Christmas party and he remembered my name. /CSB

I wouldn't sweat it, LA, the NY Times has a seething disdain for anywhere in the country outside of New York and Westchester counties. The NY Post is a better source for local news than the NYT for fark's sake.

"Little gets Angelenos more riled up than a New York Times piece about their city"

Nope, there are hundreds of the things that get me riled up more. I have watches with dead batteries that get me more riled up.

Watches With Dead Batteries is my Morris Day and The Time cover band.

I read an article a few months ago from a reporter who worked for both the LA Times and the New York Times. I cannot remember his name. However, he said that when he went to work for the LA Times he was told to go out and find stories and report them honestly. When he went to the New York Times he was told this is what you're reporting on and this is how you're going to slant the story, we don't report news - we shape opinions and tell people what to think.

It's just sort of assumed by people that LA and NYC should have some kind of rivalry since they're the two biggest cities in the country, and, I don't know what's going on in New York, but I sure as hell haven't come across anything of the sort while living in LA. New York is a place sometimes people have to go for their job. That's about it really.

I'm a Los Angeles native.  I don't like Los Angeles the city.  I like the metro area, though.  People do conflate the two.  Luckily, the metro area offers pretty much anything one could want, whether it's city living with walkability, suburbia with great schools and parks, sparsely populated mountain towns with plenty of nature and a handful of historic Main Streets nestled on flatter parts of those mountains, sprawling ranch land where one has space between their neighbors(whether it's a few hundred feet or way more) and the ability to raise animals or grow produce, etc etc.

I think that rivalry does exist, I've heard it firsthand, but only in the minds of people who grew up somewhere else and make a move to one of the big cities since they had to choose one over the other. As a native New Yorker, obviously our true rivals are North Jersey and South Florida, since literally everyone  has family in both.

Interesting. I guess "honest reporting" doesn't extend to Tesla at the LA Times.

/LA Times is a rag
