Times' standards are quite as bad as you ... newspapers is plummeting.The Orange County Register is the oher big newspar in the area.  A couple years ago, some entrepreneur bought it from the Hoiles family (Infighting, what a surprise), poured a lot of money into it and spectacularly increased its news staff.  Unfort...
