Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong

Recommended Posts

LOS ANGELES—Today, biotech magnate Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong will officially acquire the Los Angeles Times and the San Diego Union Tribune from media company Tronc for $500 million.

Doctor who? A guy who's somehow managed to rack up every single job title known to humankind:

  • Surgeon, philanthropist, entrepreneur, adjunct professor, billionaire, minority owner of the LA Lakers, issuer of over 230 patents...and now?

Newspaper owner, a title he doesn't take lightly at all. Soon-Shiong will have to work some magic on the LA Times, a paper whose staffers were basically in open rebellion last year over several questionable decisions by ownership. 

And then, of course, there's the huge challenge of navigating a newspaper industry that's struggling to adapt to the digital age. 

Maybe he and fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos (owner of the Washington Post) will talk strategy together.

I just happen to have a spare "star in a stick".

When you tap the star on something, glitter comes out.

I will give it to him for free, as I control the glitter supply.

BROUHAHAHAHAHAAA!
