Barry Munitz, Out at Getty
As Tyler notes, modestly downplaying his own part in reporting this story, The LA Times has been beating the drum about Munitz for quite some time. Now, if only we could get that crew to cover the White House and Congress.
Barry Munitz abruptly ended his controversial eight-year tenure as head of the J. Paul Getty Trust on Thursday, agreeing to resolve "any continuing disputes" by paying the Getty $250,000 and giving up severance pay and benefits that would have exceeded $1.2 million.
Munitz admitted no wrongdoing, and the trust did not specify the issues underlying his resignation. But the decision came after more than a year of relentless controversy at the Getty, much of which has centered on Munitz's leadership.
