Michael Hiltzik"s Blog Taken Down

Los Angeles Times Blogger Michael Hiltzik is no longer blogging at the Times for posting messages as someone other than himself.

Notice from the Editors

The Times has suspended Michael Hiltzik’s Golden State blog on latimes.com. Hiltzik admitted Thursday that he posted items on the paper’s website, and on other websites, under names other than his own. That is a violation of The Times ethics guidelines, which requires editors and reporters to identify themselves when dealing with the public. The policy applies to both the print and online editions of the newspaper. The Times is investigating the postings.
