When Dreamworks cofounder Jeffrey Katzenberg informed Los Angeles Times editor Dean Baquet that his partner David Geffen wanted to buy the newspaper, Baquet reportedly responded, "How's he going to feel the first time we review a movie or music produced by a friend of his?" The conversation is reported in the current edition of L.A. Weekly by columnist Nikki Finke, who cited an unnamed insider, who also told her that Geffen is "very serious" and "pretty confident" about purchasing the newspaper from Tribune Corporation.
