Patterico's Pontifications


Michael Kinsley Leaving L.A. Times (UPDATE: Only In His Position As Opinion Editor)

Filed under: Dog Trainer — Patterico @ 7:52 am

As L.A. Observed says: “That was fast.”

The other day, I said:

[Outgoing editor John] Carroll supported Kinsley 100%, by all reports. Does [new editor Dean] Baquet? Again, I don’t know.

I think we know the answer now.

UPDATE: If you actually read the L.A. Observed post, as opposed to just glancing at it as I did earlier, you’ll see that Kinsley is leaving his current position, but is staying with the paper in some undefined capacity.

UPDATE x2: I can only hope that Kinsley’s innovations don’t go the way of his editorial position.

UPDATE x3: More thoughts here.

  1. I liked this part. He should have used “arrogance” instead of “strains”, though:
    He attributes the change in part to the strains of running a large department while living part-time in Seattle: “I think I’m doing a pretty good job. But that’s the one thing that is not working out, so we’re going to try to fix it.”

    Michael Kinsley, the Seattle based, but Los Angeles Times Editor of the paper’s editorial and opinion-pages is apparenly OUT. The Editor and Publisher has Kinsley Expected to Lose Top Edit Page Post, But Remain at ‘L.A. Times’.

  3. Someone should take the editorial that ran the Sunday before Election Day 2004 and update it for this situation. It could be called “The Failed Editorship of Michael Kinsley” and could cover his reign of banality.
