It's been five years since the Chandler family sold the Los Angeles Times to Chicago-based media conglomerate the Tribune Company. In that time, the paper has been viewed as a test case on how to reconcile journalistic imperatives with the bottom-line pressures imposed by a parent corporation. Brooke talks to Kevin Roderick, a blogger at LAObserved.com and former Times editor, about the fallout.

Released in 1997, Fallout is the spiritual successor to the 1988 hit Wasteland. The protagonist of the game is tasked with recovering a water chip to replace the chip that broke in his/her home, Vault 13. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic southern California, beginning in the year 2161. It was originally intended to run under the GURPS role-playing game system, but a disagreement with Steve Jackson, creator of GURPS, over the game's violent content[citation needed] required the development of a new system, the SPECIAL System. Fallout's atmosphere and artwork are reminiscent of post-WWII America and the nuclear paranoia that was widespread at that time.
