39630613-04194604.jpgRFK Remembered: Joe Mozingo‘s piece about David Steiner, former campaign manager for RFK, is incredibly compelling — especially paired with Katy Newton‘s interview with Steiner, who speaks about Robert Kennedy‘s assassination for the first time publicly since the shooting 40 years ago.

30306866.jpgFive Stages of Blogger Genius: Andrw Malcolm cleverly and intelligently dissects Hillary Clinton‘s decisions in a brilliant post about five stages of political grief. Clearly, Clinton is a bit stuck in Denial.

39548714-02185627.jpgA True ‘Hit’: We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: Katy Newton‘s ICU feature is a stroke of genius. Part reality show, part journeyman journalist piece, ICU is breaking ground (and entertaining us to boot!).

katynewtonmug.jpgWhen we first suggested that new LAT vid-journo Katy Newton was hired to be a peeping tom, she sent an e-mail to some higher-ups suggesting that, just maybe, their press release was “sending the wrong message.”

But after we saw the new feature, ICU, (and especially after we fell in love with it) Katy kindly agreed to tell FBLA how she came up with the idea:

The idea, from what we can tell, is to allow journo Katy Newton to find the real stories of “real people.” But it sounds real prying. We’re gonna try to connect with her ourselves in a minute here and report back to you. In the meantime, here’s the press release:
