FBLA Predicted LA Times Changes 2 Years Ago

Crystal Fishbowl.jpg

Back in 2006, we asked readers what would improve the LA Times.

Joanne Carson:
Q: What’s the one thing you’d like to see the paper add?
A: STORIES ABOUT PET HERO’S, PET SUCCESS STORIES, PET HUMAN INTEREST STORIES

Check! LA Times has added an animal blog: Unleashed. Where it’s always shark week.

Least favorite section?

Brady Westwater
West magazine–Absolutely clueless about LA, much less the West. Have considered class action suit against it on behalf of… West…for defamation of character.

And poof! West vanished.

Kevin F. Sherry

Q: What’s one thing you’d want to change?
A: Less reporting of stuff we read about online yesterday. More analysis of that. And more features and local coverage. That’s all papers can do to compete anymore.

LA Now is a step in the right direction, don’t you think?
