OC Register Co-Owner Eric Spitz Thinks He's the Only Person Ever to Grow Up in House Shared by 2 Families
Here at Navel Gazing, we're always trashing Orange County Register owner and publisher Aaron Kushner for his attempts to save journalism with his shiny, happy, comfort-the-comforted approach to newspaper-dom. We rarely talk about the other owner of the Reg: Eric Spitz, a guy who maybe we should pay more attention to, since the few times he has spoken makes him come off as even more out of touch with reality than Kushner.
Meanwhile, Kushner continues to piper along...
Take, for instance, a recent puff piece by the Register's Minister of Information, Eric Morgan. Morgan summed up what he called a "rare glimpse" into the lives of Kushner and Spitz by detailing the information offered at a Feb. 19 panel sponsored by the Irvine Chamber of Commerce. There, Spitz offered a bizarre anecdote: he said he grew up in a household shared by two families (his nuclear family, and that of his aunt, uncle and cousins), and that he's never met any two families ever sharing similar circumstances.
