The story continues to unfold.
With the release of the new tape on Friday, it's clear cops were wrong when they said Ted Rall lied in the LA Times. Now the LAPD -- and the Times -- are the ones in the hot seat. Here's what happens next.

I have been playing this game for over 10 years - is that a good thing?
In June 2015, a new front in war against the Iron Horde emerged. It's time to raid World of Warcraft's Tanaan Jungle. Ready? Mark Kaelin shows us how. Gallery.

The Ted Rall LA Times brouhaha is lighting up the net. Rall responds to the paper's explanation on why it fired him after the LAPD complained about him. Exclusive.

Video autoplay will embarrass you at work or home, and waste a good chunk of your morning. Here's how to turn off video autoplay in Twitter and Facebook.

And the plot thickens.
A newly enhanced version of the tape Los Angeles police used to convince the LA Times to fire Ted Rall now shows cops were either lying and/or knowingly tampered with the tape. The Ted Rall-LAPD-LATimes scandal continues ... listen here.

14 years is a long time to hold onto a recording. Something very odd going on here.
The Los Angeles Times fires Ted Rall, an award-winning political cartoonist and essayist, after the LAPD objects to his criticism of cops and produces a hard-to-hear tape as "proof." Listen for yourself. Exclusive.
