The New York Times reports on the continued sad decline of the L.A. Times, noting the most recent blow: The newspaper quietly moved the Los Angeles Times Magazine out of the hands of its editorial team -- and on to the sales side. (This makes the whole Staples Center controversy look like a blip. That was a one time -- albeit tremendous -- mistake, while this is permanent.)
As consolation, Times editor Russ Stanton has asked that the magazine's name be changed, to avoid any confusion over whether or not the L.A. Times journalists are still involved.
I humbly put forth a few replacement magazine title suggestions:
Los Angelez Tymez Magazeene
Jennifer Convertibles Circular (Now With Stories)
Donald T. Sterling Presents the Los Angeles Times Magazine
Los Angeles Times Magazine: Macy's Edition
Staples Los Angeles Times Magazine: An Anschutz Publication
The Otis Chandler Rolling In His Grave Monthly
