C-SPAN taped it, but there's no sign of it on the schedule. Baquet gives his vision of the Times, responds to criticism of the paper, concedes the editors need to be smarter about Los Angeles coverage and says the paper has cut the Sports section too deeply. Baquet also says the recent Steve Lopez columns about Skid Row were designed to show a new aggressiveness on local stories. Joe Scott blogs about the interview.
