Arianna Huffington Responds to Mayor’s LAT Suggestion


By Richard Horgan Comment

During a half-hour Wednesday sit-down with HuffPost Live Los Angeles co-host Jacob Soboroff, newly minted mayor elect Eric Garcetti at one point made a funny throwaway observation. Instead of Rupert, Charles/David or Eli, how about Arianna Huffington as the new owner of the LA Times, he mused.

FishbowlNY put in a request today to HP-HQ for Arianna’s reaction, but she {sniff} opted for the broader pulpit of Twitter:

We’re no Sun Valley, Idaho airport parked experts, but shouldn’t it here be Arianna making an offer? One that would need to be heavily leveraged so as to allow for someone else to wind up with the non-LAT pieces of the Tribune Co. newspaper empire. Still, to us at least, this is an intriguing idea.
