New Owner Plans Museum, Basketball Court for LA Times

This profile of the Los Angeles Times’ about-to-be new owner, Patrick Soon-Shiong, may undercut the hope among LA Times’ employees that he’ll rescue the paper like Jeff Bezos saved the Washington Post. To start with, there’s the concluding two paragraphs, which hint that Soon-Shiong will introduce more of a Trump-friendly editorial stance. Then there’s the lavish plans for a new office that, according to this piece, would include “lots of light, a day care center, a museum to honor the newspaper’s history and modern technology” and eventually a basketball court. Employees better hope they don’t end up working in that museum.
