Support your source for local news!
The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

We've rounded up our readers' favorite posts from the past year. As in previous years, you loved posts with naked people, celebrities and even naked celebrities. Our readers' favorites didn't look a whole lot different than Angelenos' top Google search terms—except there was more nudity (so if you're at work, consider yourself warned!). There were a few crime stories that really captured your attention: the story of renegade ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner, the tale of teen Hannah Anderson whose kidnapping prompted an Amber Alert and the strange mystery of the McStay family whose bodies were discovered buried in the desert.
