A Colorado man has acknowledged that he called media outlets to report that a 7-foot alligator had been captured at a Los Angeles lake -- a report that turned out to be a hoax. Alamosa County Sheriff Dave Stong said Friday that James Solvig is under investigation on suspicion of criminal impersonation. No charges have been filed. The alligator, known as "Reggie," was dumped in a Harbor City lake several months ago.

This is a corrected version of the original post; see the note below. It's a drag to be a cultural villain. Lawyers, politicians, unionized teachers -- all have felt the sting of public disdain for their careers, their ethics, themselves. And then there's the lowest of the low: journalists. Being one of that species, I know there's no way to defend the profession without appearing self-serving. But as I hear the unending criticisms of the media -- much of it coming from people who are media figures themselves, and part of it stemming from an intensive and purposeful campaign to discredit media outlets that don't slant the news toward a conservative viewpoint -- I can't help feeling that an awful lot of it reflects confusion and ignorance on the part of the critics.

DENVER -- James Egan Holmes, the man accused of killing 12 people and injuring 58 others at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater on July 20, is expected to be in court Thursday in a hearing to unseal more details about the case. Twenty news media outlets, including the Los Angeles Times, have joined in a motion to ease a strict gag order imposed on the case by District Court Judge William Sylvester. That order bans anyone connected with the case from discussing it, including those at the University of Colorado.

Florida rolled to a 24-6 victory in its season opener against Toledo on Saturday, but Coach Will Muschamp was anything but happy during his postgame news conference. At least he was unhappy with certain media outlets at that news conference. After discussing the game, Muschamp went on a tirade lasting more than two minutes calling out the Gainesville Sun, the Palm Beach Post and Gator Country for incorrectly reporting that freshman defensive linemen Jaynard Bostwick had been suspended for the game.
