Eli Broad insists that Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky's news website misquoted him saying that his art museum will definitely be built Downtown on Grand Avenue. "Absolutely it’s coming to this site," is what ZevWeb reported Broad saying on Tuesday. Broad and his spokeswoman, Karen Denne, dispute that those words were said, and it's politically sensitive since the official approval won't be rubber-stamped until Monday. Yaroslavsky's site says, in an update, that the quote "is documented in the writer’s notes from her interview with Broad on Tuesday at the county Hall of Administration. The supervisor’s website stands behind its report."
Media person note: Yaroslavsky's writer, former L.A. Times editor and reporter Lennie LaGuire, also makes artisanal jam these days and her Ellelle Kitchen jammery is rated "best locally made jam" in this month's Los Angeles Magazine.
