A Question For The LA Times: Who Inserted "The Blogs" For Michael Skube?

Skube bashes blogs and admits to Ed Cone that he doesn't even read them. He answers TPM's question like this:

So against my better judgment, I sent Skube an email telling him that I found it hard to believe he was very familiar with TPM if he was including us as examples in a column about the dearth of original reporting in the blogosphere.

To which I got this response: "I said I did not refer to you in the original. Your name was inserted late by an editor who perhaps thought I needed to cite more examples ... "

Who inserted the names of the blogs for Skube's article that were included if he doesn't read them? Ask jim.newton@latimes.com
