James Rainey vs Jill Stewart Redux

Jill Stewart penned a rebuttal to James Rainey’s “take-down” piece about the LA Weekly.

Since LATimes.com is crashing on and off due to the Michael Jackson deluge, we have posted then entire piece after the break, but here’s an excerpt:

Rainey accuses me of being an ideologue. Isn’t he talking about himself? I suspect that he cannot abide a mixed-bag political mutt like me, a lifelong Democrat raised in a working-class union household, yet one who finds the Democratic leaders now running most of L.A.’s political and civic institutions to be doing an exceptionally poor job of it. That’s news, and we at the Weekly will continue to cover it.

After their servers catch up – the story should be here.

    Last week’s cheap eats feature was a big hit with readers, so Food Section editor Leslie Brenner kills that dangerous trend. Regina Schrambling writes about an AI geek with a software program and a palate of styrofoam.

    Baby Video Study: Junk Science
    Bruce Kluger’s op-ed on the academic study of baby videos has all the actual information on the methodology that that news story lacked. Gist: researchers never saw or listened to any children.

    Santa Barbara Slug-Fest
    The legal battle between Wendy McCaw and former employees of the Santa Barbara News-Press should serve as a cautionary tale for all those who wanted David Geffen to buy the LAT.
    James Rainey’s reporting is even-handed.

    A-1 With a (Would-be) Bullitt
    Dan Neil drives Steve McQueen’s Ferrari. Terrific piece, worst video ever. Why? Car not shown in motion–fast motion. Sitdown interview is static–the car owner should have been doing something. Once again: Net video should not look like tv.
