Hollywood elites keep public off of public beach
Los Angeles County purchased 2.5 acre El Sol Beach in Malibu for public use in 1976. More than 30 years later the public is unable to get access because neighboring Hollywood figures Michael Eisner (former Disney CEO) and Gregory J. Bonann, co-creator of Baywatch , have fought attempts to acquire the necessary rights of way for the public to get there. State law says the public has the right to get there, but technicalities can take up a lot of time, so meantime it is in effect a private preserve of the wealthy.
The Los Angeles Times deserves a lot of credit for bringing this story to the public held in such contempt by Hollywood moguls.
