The L.A. Times Is in the Middle of Yet Another Power Struggle

By Hillel Aron

 There appears to be yet another power struggle over control of America's most hilariously named newspaper chain, tronc (with a lowercase t), formerly known as Tribune Publishing, which includes a little daily newspaper called the Los Angeles Times. This contest pits two rich men against each other: the daring and wily tech entrepreneur and would-be savior of journalism Michael Ferro, and the enigmatic South African-born surgeon and second richest Angeleno Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong.
