According to the Portland newspaper, Larry Scott has reverted to pay-for-positive-news as he tries to prop up the PAC-12 from losing more ground. This looks bad for Scott and bad for the LA Times. It makes me wonder what other sections of the media are for sale. After a little snooping, the crisis management firm was Feishman-Hillard

From the story -
Said the Pac-12 staff member: “Literally, in a meeting, our communications people were like, ‘Is there anyone we can pay to write positive stories?’”

The Pac-12 coverage expanded.

But so did the drama.

The Oregonian/OregonLive’s report on Jan. 2, 2019, set off shockwaves that still reverberate today. Even now, it isn’t entirely clear what the agreement called for, but enough details emerged to cause deep concerns in the Los Angeles Times newsroom.
