Even if Robert Scheer wasn’t fired last year from the Los Angeles Times because he dared to tell the truth, we’d still admire the guy. But he was clearly a breath of pugnacious, trenchant fresh air for the LA Times — and that annoyed the heck out of the editor. (No doubt, the Tribune Company, which owns the LA Times, was getting heat from the White House because Scheer took no prisoners among the Busheviks.)
