    Santa Barbara newspaper owner sues over critical article
    Story by Chapman University professor is defaming, the lawsuit says. Author's attorney says the suit has little chance.

    The controversial owner of a Santa Barbara newspaper has sued the author of a magazine article critical of the paper's management, alleging it defamed the paper.

    The lawsuit calls the American Journalism Review article by Chapman University journalism professor Susan Paterno "nothing but a biased, false and misleading diatribe" against Ampersand Publishing LLC, the holding company of the paper's billionaire co-publisher Wendy McCaw, which owns the Santa Barbara News-Press. The suit, filed Dec. 12 in Orange County Superior Court, seeks unspecified damages.

    That was definitely worth the 15 minutes it took to read. Pretty damning stuff in there about McCaw.

    I know some of the people involved in this and I can say the the News-Press is one fucked-up organization. At one time, I'd have given my left nut for a job there. Now, not so much.
