We Tour Los Angeles Times Amidst War Jitters
||Here we are in the Times newsroom. There was a somber tone to
this field trip as the attacks on New York and Washington we reflected
in tightened security at the Times. Darrell Kunitomi of the Times answers
questions from the MC101s.
As always, the Mass Comm 101 field trip to the Times began with a hearty
breakfast at Phillippe's, home of the French Dip Sandwich, a fixture in
Downtown Los Angeles since 1908. Typically, only a few students answer
the call for an early breakfast Downtown, but it is good to sit down and
talk with them in a more informal setting than the classroom usually allows.
||Jitters over the recent terrorist attacks on New York and D.C. led
to a lighter than usual turnout. However, those who showed at Philippe's
had a good time.
||Meanwhile, back at the Times we got to see some of the more unlikely
aspects of the news operation like the test kitchen for the Food section.
||It is always fund to just look around the Times newsroom. Here's one
reporter's collection of political memrobilia.
