Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - News -

LOS AN­GE­LES (AP) — The Los An­ge­les Po­lice Depart­ment has launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion af­ter a re­cruit­ment ad went up on the right-wing web­site Bre­it­bart, the Los An­ge­les Times re­ports.

The depart­ment says such a job list­ing would con­flict with the depart­ment’s “core val­ues.”

Po­lice Chief Michel Moore said Satur­day on Twit­ter that the LAPD did not pur­chase ad space from the site and is try­ing to de­ter­mine whether the post­ing was meant to tar­nish the depart­ment’s im­age.

Crit­ics have ac­cused Bre­it­bart of run­ning racist and sex­ist con­tent over the past decade. They cite ar­ti­cles with such head­lines as “The Smartest Peo­ple in the World Are All Men.”
