The Los Angeles Times shuttered their Costa Mesa-based printing press facility last week, and the effects are being felt today. “Many problems with the Los Angeles Times presses last night and early this morning — with numerous breakages of the pressroom web — and some papers are still just being delivered,” reports LA Observed. “Advertisers and readers are reportedly livid all over the place.”
As of an hour ago, the Times' LA Now blog said that 95% of the papers had been delivered.
Wow, talk about a snafu witha silver lining. Turns out that newspapers and Orange County aren't quite dispensable!
