Jill Stewart versus James Rainey: My Los Angeles Times Op-Ed

After James Rainey attacked my form of aggressive journalism in the Los Angeles Times on June 19, a wave of people jumped to my defense. Tim Cavanaugh, a former Web opinion page editor at the Los Angeles Times, took it a step further by asking an online editor there, Paul Thornton, to invite me to write a "Blowback" essay for the Times.

Here it is, headlined, "A cheap broadside on the LA Weekly." Thanks very much to Cavanaugh and Thornton.
