Hiltzik’s Column Not Running Today

Michael Hiltzik’s business column usually runs on Mondays and Thursdays. It’s not there today. Kevin Roderick says he doesn’t know whether it means anything or not. Neither do I.

  1. He probably spent too much time defensive blogging to get his column done…

  2. Maybe out washing his sock puppets…

  3. Possible locations for Michael Hiltzik this morning:

    [ ] Bitching over the backyard fence with Jared Paul Stern

    [ ] Seeing if David Lee Roth’s position has been filled yet

    [ ] Two words: newspaper carrier

    Nicely said. I’m guessing they needed some extra scrubbing to get the slime out.

  5. A phone rings at the LA Times:

    “Hello.”

    “Yes, this is Mike Hiltzik, I won’t be coming to work today.”

  6. Maybe Hiltzik is just tired. Continually having to bleach out slime from those sock puppets wears out a guy.

  8. […] Hiltzik responded to Patterico’s accusations with this excruciatingly lame effort on the Golden State blog, in which he tried to duck questions about his dishonest use of pseudonyms by focusing instead on the propriety of using pseudonyms generally.

  9. Cmon folks. Mike Hiltzik has a serious problem with multiple personalities. He’s probably under the care of a psychiatrist right now, getting them resolved.

  11. […] I have another “important subtext” for you: that is not true. Hiltzik’s column was suspended just after I revealed his sock-puppetry, and never appeared again. That’s something you already know, if you read (and trust) New Media — like the blog you’re reading right now, which reported the discontinuation of Hiltzik’s column here, here, and here. […]
