"LA Times" Apologizes for Erroneous Tupac Shooting Story

By |

The Los Angeles Times has issued an apology following yesterday's revelation that their March 17th report which implicated Sean "Diddy" Combs and his associates in a 1994 shooting of Tupac Shakur was partially based on fabricated documents. "In relying on documents that I now believe were fake, I failed to do my job," Chuck Philips, the author of the report said in a statement. Deputy managing editor Marc Duvoisin added: "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." An imprisoned con man, James Sabatino, is believed to have forged the FBI documents that were at the center of the report.
