Why Won't The L.A. Times Admit They Were Wrong About Ted Rall?

Ted Rall, the controversial cartoonist who's been a featured author here at C&L, was fired by the L.A. Times last week, in the most publicly humiliating way possible: An open letter to the readers in the pages of the paper, saying Rall lied about an encounter with cops he'd described in several of his cartoons through the years.

Here's the thing: They were wrong. Just plain wrong, as an enhanced audiotape shows.
