In his increasingly desperate efforts to project himself as a crime fighter and not a liar who reneged on a sworn solemn promise and tried and failed to threaten his political rival, District Attorney candidate Alan Jackson, an embattled Carmen Trutanich held a 'press conference' in downtown Los Angeles to grandstand the filing of misdemeanor charges against four sellers of counterfeit mechandize.
Our headline, 'Counterfeit Trutanich,' is not our stated opinion, not our stated view, and not even our stated comment. It's the title given to the photograph of blowhard Trutanich by Daily News staff photographer Hans Gutknecht.
If you build it, they will come. Not.
But an unfortunate wide-shot of Trutanich's grandstanding event revealed a rather different picture; few showed up for Trutanich's little piece of 'tough on crime' self-promotion.
Perhaps the Daily News did have the right title for their photograph. Trutanich's grandstanding could be seen as being as fake, phony and disgusting as the phony Rolex watches and DVDs on display.
