"Los Angeles Weekly" sold and gutted!
laweekly.com, 10:27 PM, Nov. 29, 2017); Editors, Wisdom Quarterly (
It’s a question we should ask no matter what we’re reading. In Latin there’s a phrase, Cui bono? It roughly translates as “Who’s benefiting?” It’s a good idea to know who’s profiting in any situation. Why? So we can make educated decisions.
The new owners of the L.A. Weekly don’t want us to know who they are. They are hiding from us. They’ve got big black bags with question marks covering their big bald heads.
These new owners just laid off nine hardworking journalists [out of 13]. Why? For sport? To start anew? To fulfill a blood vendetta that is centuries old?
Maybe they have a good reason. Maybe they don’t. We don’t know. You don’t know. No one knows but them. Who owns [the L.A. Weekly]? It’s a fair question. Who’s benefiting? We deserve to know. Source
