Jackson lashes Trutanich early



With this Internet ad, Alan Jackson's campaign for DA leaves little doubt about their present strategy. They're going after Carmen Trutanich.

This is indeed an attack ad. In one segment, there is gratuitous reference to Steve Lopez referring to Trutanich as "LA's Mubarek." But in truth, pretty much all the ad does is state facts.

Meanwhile, there's subtext too: they've turned the chest-thumping 800-pound gorilla on the sidelines into a screeching 50-pound lemur on the periphery. Clever, that.
