Wow. All of you anti-Svonkinites are making a huge assumption here: that anything this "reporter" prints is accurate or true. Miki Jackson has a vendetta against the LACCD and wants to see it destroyed. Mars Melnicoff is a discredited, poor excuse for a journalist who is known to publish stories without any validation or verification and who has never, in her short career, published a fair and balanced article telling both sides of a story. All you have to do is read any of her stories to see the obvious agenda. Maybe Scott isn't perfect or saintly, but if you are getting your information from Mars Melnicoff on the LA Weekly Blog, there is a better than average chance that it is not only slanted, but outright false and libelous.
