The Pasadena Star-News was one of several important Los Angeles area newspapers. It was a relatively balanced newspaper and favored neither side during a series of strikes by the construction workers union. Nevertheless, Chester Martin, one of the founders of the union, preferred to give it interviews rather than the anti-labor Los Angeles Times.
