Re: Los Angeles Times tape (Obama & Co.)

Dear Sam:

I know you like to play the common man role, but you would really make things better if you gave out a fax and phone number for your office at the Tribune. Contacting you through the newsroom seems somewhat antithetical, what with you downsizing and all. (Is Rick Pearson gone yet? Big savings that.)

I am writing to ask you to “free” the Los Angeles Times tape that has engendered so much controversy and interest this week.

Publishing a newspaper is a public trust, as the Wall Street Journal reminds its readers each January.

Since you are a law graduate, I will assume you retain familiarity with basic principles of law.

It is a fundamental principle of fiduciary law that a public trustee should not enter into contracts that either are contrary to the interests of the trust beneficiary (in the case of a newspaper, the public), create conflicts between the trustee and beneficiary or are contrary to public policy. The so-called “confidentiality agreement” entered into between someone (who) at the Times and the source of the tape was an agreement which violated all three of the foregoing principles. It is contrary to public policy and unenforceable.

Public sentiment is overwhelmingly in favor of releasing the tape. So, in the interest of the beneficiaries of the public trust you hold, the decision is a no-brainer.

Please publish and release the tape.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions,

Sincerely yours,



P. S. If the Tribune can’t afford a phone line for you, I would be happy to contribute. I hate to lose you guys as a neighbor in the neighborhood. We’ll win the phone battle for the Colonel.
Readers of Obama: The Man Behind The Mask, say the book is still the only gold standard and practical handbook on Barack Obama’s unfitness for the presidency. Buy it.
Book orders: Immediate shipment from or signed copies from the publisher are available.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I recently decided to oppose Barack Obama’s election and became Executive Director of The Stop Obama Coalition, By default, I became the national leader of the anti-Obama movement. I am not acting as either a Democrat or Republican. I have had no contact whatsoever with the McCain Campaign. I am not a member of any political organization. The views expressed are entirely independent. I am acting as an American citizen who sincerely believes Obama is not the man we need in the Oval Office. We are going to run a very dynamic and aggressive campaign against Obama. I will continue to write my news and opinion columns for /s/ Andy Martin
URGENT APPEAL: The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama is raising money to fight Barack Obama. Please give generously up to the maximum of $100. Our ability to fight and defeat Barack Obama is directly dependent on the generosity of every American.”
The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama limits itself to $100 maximum contributions; there are no bundlers, fat cats or illegal contributions. Obama is opposed to everything America stands for,” says Executive Director Andy Martin. “But while Obama has raised more than a third of a BILLION dollars, his opponents have raised virtually nothing. We can’t just sit back and expect John McCain to do the job all alone. Americans can either contribute now, or pay later. If we do not succeed, Obama will.”
