LA Times RETRACTS DIDDY ROBBERY

LA Times who themselves have had shakeups in their news divisions this week with their focus being shifted to the web, have totally retracted their story provided by Chuck Phillips.The story “An Attack on Tupac Shakur Launched a Hip-Hop War” made news about two weeks ago when Phillips charged that he had evidence that Diddy and Jimmy Rosemond had prior knowledge of an violent shooting and assault on legendary rapper Tupac at a recording studio in NYC.

An article and related materials published on the Los Angeles Times website on March 17 have been removed from the site because they relied heavily on information that The Times no longer believes to be credible.

The Times has since concluded that the FBI reports were fabricated and that some of the other sources relied on — including the person Philips previously believed to be the “confidential source” cited in the FBI reports — do not support major elements of the story.
