The Los Angeles Times is looking to imitate and fill an online reporter position to cover the “Celebrity Justice” beat. “This is part of a major initiative to build out a Crime & Justice space on this year,” according to a memo posted by LAT Innovation Editor Russ Stanton. “It involves writing breaking news off the entertainment beat, scouring court files to develop interesting and offbeat stories related to the entertainment industry and its denizens, and working with Metro in updating ongoing trials and following up on cases.” Yeah, I bet you’re all thrilled. (Thanks to Kevin Roderick at for reporting this first.)
