LA Times Book Awards: Editor O’Shea Peeved at Bloggers

Why the LA Times Festival of Books falls on the same weekend as Coachella is a mystery. Great way to ensure parking for the geezers at UCLA.

Last night, at the LAT Book Awards, Jim O’Shea was a tad defensive about “bloggers”, meaning, FBLA guesses, LA Observed where internal LAT memos are posted nearly as soon as the LAT staff receives them. Doesn’t O’Shea have rather bigger fish to fry?

FBLA hopes this guy found a date.
