After the district attorney's spokeswoman blasted investigative reporter Christine Hanley, the editor of the LAT Orange County edition responded:
Susan Kang Schroeder’s letter to her staff about our reporter Christine Hanley was full of errors and misstatements. It was a shocking personal attack, and particularly inappropriate coming from the public official responsible for press relations at the district attorney’s office. It is also worth noting that the letter falls into a running pattern of attacking reporters engaged in investigative work. Christine is a veteran reporter and The Los Angeles Times has complete confidence in her integrity.
Schroeder fires back at the OC Weekly's blog.
