Daily News drops anti-jeans dress code

You knew it was only a matter of time before the suits who run the L.A. Daily News realized last week's dress code was a dumb idea. Editor Carolina Garcia just put out the word:


After serious review, the proposed dress code has been dropped from consideration. Let's continue to dress professionally and to use our best judgment in choosing the right attire for the task at hand - whether covering a city hall news conference, chasing a fire or working the night copy desk.

Thanks to everyone for your involvement in helping arrive at this decision.
