LA Times and Others Boycotting U.C.L.A. Practices

Oh no. How will we go on?

Rather than link to the scorned toddler that is the Los Angeles Times, I'll link to the article in Inside UCLA which is written by Miguel Melendez. Melendez has done an outstanding job since coming on this fall to cover U.C.L.A. Football for The Daily News, and I'm very honestly sorry he got wrapped up in this. But the media is taking a stand in a pissing contest against the college football teams in the city:

Mora on Wednesday also said open practice to the media will resume today, but local media outlets made a preemptive strike. In an effort to uphold their journalistic integrity, the Los Angeles Times and Los Angeles News Group instituted their own policy to not have its reporters observe UCLA and USC practices and attend only post-practice interview availability with coaches and players.

I must admit that I almost snorted buggers out of my nose when I read that the LA Times was protecting its "journalistic integrity". This from the paper that employs TJ Slimers? Rich. Hey, guys...Roger Goddell is laughing at your disingenuousness.

With the restrictions on reporting specific events such as position changes and injuries already in practice, this really isn't going to have a significant effect on news coming from Spaulding. We will still have the post practice videos of Coach Mora for you here.

And this began because some folks from our Athletic Department couldn't handle their job.
