Friday will be an astonishing day.... It will be day that will be remembered forever at our "tiny community newspaper" located in a small block of "mom and pop" small businesses here in Cerritos...
Los Cerritos Community Newspaper will be publishing hundreds of internal emails between embattled Los Angeles County Assessor John R. Noguez and controversial Arizona tax agent Ramin Salari on Friday morning at around 5 a.m.
Both Noguez and Salari are the focus of a wide ranging investigation by members of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office of Public Integrity over “influence peddling” and other “pay to play practices.” Los Cerritos Community Newspaper was the first media outlet in Southern California to report on the massive probe back in early February.
The emails are staggering. The words are hard to read. The truth. Finally.
I will be on several radio and other news programs on Friday, and so will my Publisher Brian Hews. We actually did a couple of pre-interviews today with KFI 640 am
Make sure you tune into KFI 640 AM beginning at 5 a.m. for the "first email" to be revealed... Wonder what "one" they will start with....?
In advance, thanks to EVERY MEDIA OUTLET in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA for your interest in "the message" and "the important role" that a community newspaper with a staff of five people has been able to accomplish....
A free and open media is the cornerstone of our society, and Artesia Boulevard and Shoemaker Avenue may become the center of a new revival for "hometown journalism" across America.
What time? 5 a.m. Are you serious... Good night.... Dream Good Dreams...
