KTLA didn't pay McClellan

Reporter Chip Yost simply asked if the self-professed pedophile Jack McClellan wanted to talk after his release from UCLA custody last night — and he did, says Channel 5 executive editor Joseph Russin. UCLA police re-arrested McClellan after the interview, and KNBC reporter Chuck Henry complained on his 11 o'clock news that other stations were paying for interviews.

This time, McClellan was turned over to the Sheriff's Department.
