Los Angeles Times editorial page editor Michael Kinsley is leaving the newspaper after a little more than a year, saying his attempts to alter the nature of opinion journalism and buff up its profile on the Internet mostly failed.
Michael Kinsley, the editorial and opinion editor of The Los Angeles Times, left the newspaper yesterday on what he described as a bitter note after a controversial year in which he experimented with a section normally known for its stodginess.
Meanwhile, Andres Martinez vows to “do a better job of bringing in local writers on the daily Op-Ed page.” Time to start a Give D.J. Waldie A Column committee. Although I guess he’s a government official. So that would be weird.
