Anita Busch: LAT’s Pellicano Ties Should Be Investigated

apell.jpgAnita Busch, the former L.A. Times reporter whose receiving of a dead fish and threatening note set off the Anthony Pellicano investigation says current L.A. Times employees remain too cozy with the investigator and should be the target of inquiry themselves. She specifically names Chuck Philips and Jim Newton, saying of Philips:

The Pellicano case coverage in the L.A. Times as reported by Chuck Philips (who told the NY Times that Pellicano was his longtime news source) should be examined. It’s a case study of how Pellicano worked his media relationships to try to destroy his adversaries.

Newton responded here.
