LA Times' Duvoisin regrets error in judgment
“In relying on documents that I now believe were fake, I failed to do my job. I’m sorry.”
— L.A. Times reporter Chuck Philips, regarding the paper’s March 17 online story alleging that Sean “Diddy” Combs was implicated in a 1994 beating of rapper Tupac Shakur.
“We should not have let ourselves be fooled. That we were is as much my fault as Chuck’s. I deeply regret that we let our readers down.”
— Deputy managing editor Marc Duvoisin
