The Muscle & Fitness Governor

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

LAist isn't one of local sites that slams The Los Angeles Times on a regular basis and we don't want to minimize the significance of our Governor seemingly having a very high-value conflict of interest but is his relationship with Wieder Publications really worth the main lead of the day? The Times coverage of the London bombings has gotten much better as the week has gone on (and slate even notes that they have the "most morsels" today) but this fitness story doesn't seem like it warrants above the fold and super big type (not to mention visual aids) least not yet. The Susie Peña autopsy and Chief Bratton's press conference yesterday is just one of the local stories that could've filled that space.
