The Los Angeles Times put on hold an L.A. Power List that was scheduled to be published last Sunday, and that was previously a subject of conflict between publisher Patrick Soon-Shiong and former executive editor Kevin Merida, TheWrap has learned.

The Power 101 list, ranking top power players and notable figures in Los Angeles, was a project over a year in the making, run by Chris Stone and Joel Rubin, deputy managing editor and associate editor for new initiatives, respectively. It was executed under former editor Merida, who sought to create a vehicle that would highlight the Times’ credibility and create conversation.
