L.A.‘s new mayor was asked this week if he has an opinion on the rumor about the billionaire Koch brothers possibly wanting to buy the Los Angeles Times. He took the safe route and quipped that he would prefer local ownership. Then he got a little twinkle in his eye and added that the Huffington Post should buy the Times. In it’s coverage today, as reported by LA Observed, the site played it straight but Arianna Huffington played along with a tweet. As I have reported for over a year billionaire Rupert Murdock, who has a home in Beverly Hills, remains the frontrunner to buy the Times.
