General Motors has cancelled its punitive boycott of the L.A. Times and resumed advertising. Many dealers had never pulled their ads from the paper, but the corporate side had yanked national ads in protest of critical coverage. In today's LAT, a GM spokesman says the paper and company "have respectfully agreed to disagree on some of the issues...We appreciate [The Times'] ongoing willingness to listen." Monday's paper had a full-page ad for the 2006 Pontiac Solstice.
