McIntyre congratulated Michael for asking "real questions" during the interview, and noted that Trutanich had been "dodging the press" because he is "truth challenged."
|Trutanich left the set before the interview had ended, but did not "storm off" according to Michael.|
The City Attorney's bad press day continued when the Los Angeles Metropolitan News-Enterprise arrived. Met News Editor/Co-Publisher Roger M. Grace pulled no punches in his Tuesday 'Perspectives' column.
"I don't recall any candidate since Richard Nixon who has evoked such negativity," Grace said of Trutanich's lengthy dirty laundry list of bad press, all dutifully reproduced at the Met News to illustrate how Los Angeles' print and electronic media have reacted to the wannabe District Attorney's campaign.
The Met News Editor also speculated that Deputy District Attorney Steve Ipsen will not file his nominating papers by today's close of business filing deadline. That deadline was extended because the incumbent, District Attorney Steve Cooley, did not do what many had speculated, rumored or even hoped; he did not file papers seeking a fourth term as Los Angeles County District Attorney by Friday's deadline. Readers can check the LA County Registrar's website to see if Ipsen does indeed drop out.
With Ipsen and Trujilo out of the race, the June 5, 2012 ballot will have six candidates for District Attorney and the top two will face each other in the November Presidential election. That's when it will get interesting, and if Trutanich manages to overcome media opposition to his candidacy and win a place in the November run-off, that's when he is most likely to go the way of his former opponent Jack Weiss; into oblivion where he belongs. Los Angeles does not like liars.
