Chuck Phillips’ Career Hit Rock Bottom — For those not in the know, Chuck Phillips was employed by the Los Angeles Times for nearly 20 years. His work detailing the entertainment industry (both the good and bad sides) helped earn him several awards and recognition among his peers and the individuals he made a living covering. However, after publishing an article in 2008 about the murder investigation of Tupac Shakur, his career was erased after the Times learned several facts in his story had holes in them. Seen as an outcast in the field he once championed, it’s baffling to realize how quickly a storied career all came to a screeching halt. If you’re interested in hearing Chuck’s side of the story, he published a lengthy piece last year regarding his career and his take on the article which changed his life.
