More on the Amazing Disappearing Blog Posts and Comments at the L.A. Times

Filed under: Dog Trainer,General — Patterico @ 9:51 pm



This is the latest in the saga of the Amazing Disappearing Blog Posts and Comments at the L.A. Times. Background here, here, and here.

This morning, I showed you a screencap of a parenthetical remark Andrew Malcolm made at the bottom of a comment posted on October 12, 2007 at 5:03 a.m. Mr. Malcolm’s parenthetical remark read as follows:

(Ans: Rielle Hunter is identifying herself as the woman. This item doesn’t.)

Here is the parenthetical in context:

As I noted this morning, this remark was amusing, because the post initially did mention Rielle Hunter — and strongly implied that she was the alleged Other Woman. As I also noted this morning, the passage implicating Hunter was later dropped without acknowledgment.

Meaning the parenthetical remark circled in the above screencap is a wee bit deceptive.

Judging from the history of this saga, what do you suppose has happened to that parenthetical remark?

If you said: “it was removed without any indication that it was ever there,” you win the grand prize! Here’s how it looks now:

This is why I’m screencapping everything. You never know what’s going to disappear from this blog from one moment to the next.

P.S. Mr. Malcolm still hasn’t replied to my e-mails asking what in the hell is going on here.

Raise your hand if you are surprised.

I see no hands.

UPDATE: I found even more! Stay tuned . . .

  1. I’m surprised the LAT would backtrack on gossip on Edwards. Hillary would bust their balls, but I figured the LAT would feel safe bashing on a midwest populist like Edwards.

  2. Zach –

    This story isn’t about Edwards. This is a story about the Clintons getting another one of their enemies, by any means possible, and that’s why it’s being buried.

  3. The connection to the Clintons is weaker if you don’t already believe they killed Vince Foster.
