Matt Doig responds to Paul Pringle

Matt Doig was the assistant managing editor of investigations for the L.A. Times when Paul Pringle pursued his story about disgraced USC medical school dean Dr. Carmen Puliafito.

We felt it was worthwhile to give Doig an opportunity to tell his side of the story.
