Times Editor Openly Defies Owner’s Call for Job Cuts


The editor of The Los Angeles Times appears to be in a showdown with the paper’s owner, the Tribune Company, over job cuts in the newsroom.

In a highly unusual move, Dean P. Baquet, who was named editor last year, was quoted yesterday in his own newspaper as saying he was defying the paper’s corporate parent in Chicago and would not make the cuts it requested.

As an employee of the Los Angeles Times Operations Department, it would be refreshing to read that someone stood up for the employees of our departments and said enough is enough as Mr. Baquet has done. My hats off to our editor.
