I’m pleased to see that the Los Angeles Times and The Washington Post has caught up days later with my reporting about the possibility of David Geffen paying $1 bil for control of the Los Angeles Times through a joint venture. (The New York Times is still way behind.) UPDATE: Now the Wall Street Journal finally matches my scoop, days late. The paper says Geffen and Zell are scheduled to meet Friday evening for informal talks. And, just as I’ve already reported, WSJ says the two men know each other and have spoken about the newspaper before.
