Armenian Genocide Dispute Erupts at LA Times

latimes-logo.gifThe Los Angeles Times is facing problems with LA Times managing editor Doug Frantz, who blocked an article by award-winning Armenian American journalist Mark Arax in the LA Times because of, according to the editor, “‘a conflict of interest that precludes you from writing about the Armenian genocide, and particularly about an ongoing congressional debate about it. …Your personal stance on the issue, in my view, prohibits you from writing about the issue objectively.’”

I hope the paper comes to its senses sooner rather than later.

The LA Observed (a LA media blog) reported on the story today (link).

The California Courier‘s Harout Sassounian is demanding that Frantz be fired.
