LOS ANGELES – Move over Los Angeles Times, there's a new newspaper in town.

The L.A. Register, published by Freedom Communications, launched on Wednesday, and is being marketed as a more conservative, pro-business community-based newspaper. It’s the brainchild of former greeting card executive and Internet entrepreneur Aaron Kushner, who took the reins as Freedom’s CEO in 2012 after acquiring it through his company, 2100 Trust.

LOS ANGELES – Last week CBS announced that Stephen Colbert will take over "The Late Show" when David Letterman retires. But opinion is split as to whether the Comedy Central star can be funny without playing the conservative-mocking character that makes "The Colbert Report" so popular.
