SUP. YAROSLAVSKY: THAT DOESN'T DO YOUR CAREER JUSTICE TO DO THAT IN A MINUTE OR SO, BUT IT'S AS GOOD AS IT GETS IN A MINUTE, AND I THINK IT GIVES US A LITTLE FLAVOR OF WHAT YOU, MARK, HAVE PARTICIPATED IN, WHAT YOU'VE COVERED OVER THESE LAST FOUR DECADES IN LOS ANGELES. JUST TO PUT IT IN PERSPECTIVE, YOU WERE COVERING THE NEWS WHEN I WAS ELECTED, AND THAT'S A LONG TIME AGO, WHEN I WAS FIRST ELECTED, AND I THINK YOU COVERED MY FIRST CAMPAIGN AND IT COVERED ALL OF US, BOTH IN THE CITY HALL AND HERE AT THE HALL OF ADMINISTRATION, NOT EXACTLY THE SEXIEST STORIES OF ALL TIME, BUT NOT LIKE THE ONES WE'VE SEEN HERE, BUT THAT'S WHERE WE GOT TO KNOW YOU, AS SOMEONE WHO WAS A STRAIGHT SHOOTER, SOMEONE WHO CALLS THEM AS HE SEES THEM, DOESN'T COME TO THE STORY WITH AN AGENDA BUT COVERS WHAT UNFOLDS IN FRONT OF YOU, AND IN SO DOING, YOU WERE ACTUALLY AND HAVE BEEN FOR ALL OF THESE YEARS A REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PUBLIC, THE VIEWING PUBLIC WHO CAN'T BE EVERYWHERE YOU ARE AND WHO RELY ON YOU TO CONVEY THE STORY AS IT HAPPENS, NOT AS YOU'D LIKE IT TO HAVE HAPPENED, NOT AS SOMEBODY ELSE WOULD LIKE IT TO HAVE HAPPENED. I SAID IN THAT INTERVIEW THAT THEY HAD IN YOUR VIDEO WHAT THEY CUT OUT WAS THAT YOU'RE IN THAT LEAGUE OF BROADCAST JOURNALISTS IN THIS TOWN. I PUT YOU IN THE BAND WITH PEOPLE LIKE CLETE ROBERTS AND MAURY GREEN, GREAT BROADCAST JOURNALISTS WHO I THINK FOLLOWED THE EDWARD R. MURROW MANTRA OF CALLING THEM AS THEY SEE THEM AND BEING OBJECTIVE ABOUT STORIES AND LET THE STORY
