As the "DARK DAYS OF ZELL" spreads through the catacombs of the "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET", glimmers of Herald Examiner style investigated journalism can still flicker within the pending "DEATH MONOLITH OF MSM BIAS JOURNALISM".
Witness this novel concept that debut today on the Times Web Site.
As Tony Villar begins his nine day, 11 fund raising events "TROLL FOR DOUGH A-THON"
, the Times "L.A. Now"
comes up with the novel idea to report the ..............FACTS!!!, and Chismo behind the scenes of the various deal makers, err, fundraisers that will make up the "TROLL FOR DOUGH A-THON".
And who best to scribe the details in the days ahead?
Well if you guess reporter David "Z-Man" Zahniser, then you win the free subscription that someone else did not renew.
Excerpts on tonights "TROLL FOR DOUGH A-THON" venue.
Let's start with tonight's $1,000-per-contributor event in Koreatown, held at 6:30 p.m. at the J.J. Grand Hotel.
The fundraiser will be co-hosted by three Korean American business leaders, including Chang Y. Lee, president of the Korean American Chamber of Commerce, according to an invitation filed with the city’s Ethics Commission.
Perhaps the most noteworthy co-host is Alexander Hugh, chief executive of the real estate development company CIC Group –- a firm that received permission from City Hall last year to build a condominium hotel with 16- and 21-story towers at 7th Street and Hobart Boulevard.
Villaraigosa made the project a top priority and had representatives of his business team lobby for its passage.
But one planning department official warned that the project would be too large for the surrounding Koreatown neighborhood.
So credit the "OLD GREY HAG ON SPRING STREET" for letting the "Z-Man" do what he does the best, report the facts, at least before the editors "cut and paste" their spin.
