L.A. Times Apologizes for Tupac Story

On March 17 the Los Angeles Times published a story implicating Sean “Diddy” Combs in the 1994 shooting of rapper Tupac. Today the L.A. Times apologized for that story because it was based on documents that were apparently fabricated.

“The bottom line is that the documents we relied on should not have been used,” Editor Russ Stanton said. “We apologize both to our readers and to those referenced in the documents … and in the story.”

Pulitzer-prize winning reporter Chuck Philips, who wrote the story, and his supervisor, Deputy Managing Editor Marc Duvoisin, also apologized.

Combs denied that he had any prior knowledge of or involvement in the robbery and shooting of Shakur at a New York recording studio. He and other subjects of the story claimed they had been defamed by the newspaper.
