Summary "The Artful Dodger" was the first story to break through the local media groupthink and expose Josh Macciello for what he was -- to report that, instead of being a legitimate contender to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers, the 36-year-old was a fraud. He did not have billions of dollars. He did not have rights to any gold mines. He had, instead, a conviction for drug dealing and a history of making promises he couldn't keep. This story pulled no punches. It exposed Macciello for what he was -- and made it all but impossible for him to use the publicity he'd generated by fooling other media organizations as a way to swindle even more investors.
