DA had a friends list too

Bad news for Orange County DA Tony Rackauckas, the guy who is trying to manipulate coverage by boycotting the L.A. Times and OC Weekly. He fired his media relations rep recently, and now she is talking (and suing). Michelle Emard says she was ordered to punish anyone who wrote stories critical of Rackauckas and to reward reporters who wouldn't. In the latter group, she fingers reporters at the Register, which denies the accusation. Previous postings on this.
