A new in-depth magazine investigation reveals how one of the most high-profile entertainment and media journalists formed troubled relationships with wealthy and influential figures who later sued him and said he “wasn’t the person” they thought he was.
On Wednesday, Los Angeles magazine published a lengthy profile of Yashar Ali, the journalist, social-media personality, and former political operative known for both his eccentric, seemingly ever-present Twitter personality and his major scoops on the misdeeds of powerful public figures like Les Moonves, Eric Garcetti, and Sharon Osbourne.
Much of the piece details Ali’s journalistic pursuits, his past as an advisor to now California Gov. Gavin Newsom, and his obsessive social-media campaigns, which range from raising money for animals to supporting numerous close friends in the entertainment industry.
