Today's interviews today

From around the local media:

  • Sam Rubin talked to SAG president Alan Rosenberg on the KTLA Morning News. "We've made monumental moves in their direction...and they have not moved one iota in our direction."
  • Frances Dinkelspiel, author of "Towers of Gold," the new bio of Isaias Hellman I told you about (and am looking forward to reading), was on KPCC's Airtalk this morning with Larry Mantle.
  • Patt Morrison went back to back with Rep. Henry Waxman (Congress) and author Sharon Waxman ("Loot") this afternon on KPCC.

And in print: Sam Zell gave his view of newspapers as a business in a Q-and-A recently with Portfolio editor in chief Joanne Lipman.
