The hard copy of this week's cover story--a media criticism on a recent Los Angeles Times profile of Southern California's richest man, Donald Bren--contains a two-page spread that dissects the puff piece.
Bren and his Irvine Co. minions are elated with reporter Scott Kraft's story, which presented the billionaire as a near-flawless superhero.
Did you know Bren is a "ruggedly handsome [man, whose alleged personal traits also include] a mix of self-discipline, creativity and entrepreneurship salted with an abiding thirst for knowledge"?
And those were just Kraft's unattributed gifts to Orange County's most powerful man.
