Kris Viesselman, 52, on Monday joined The Times in the newly created position of chief transformation editor and creative director. The Minnesota native comes to Los Angeles from Congressional Quarterly and Roll Call in Washington, D.C., where she served as editor in chief, leading a newsroom of more than 100 people covering Congress. Earlier in her career, she worked at The Times, the Orange County Register and the San Diego Union-Tribune. She has spent most of her career in California, starting out at the Sacramento Bee. Viesselman will be in charge of the digital report, audience engagement, the data desk, design, video and newsletters — areas of growth identified by The Times’ new owner, Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, who last month acquired the California Times news group, which includes the San Diego paper, from Chicago newspaper company Tronc. Also promoted was Kimi Yoshino, 46, who has served as business editor for the last four years. She becomes deputy managing editor, overseeing sports, business, arts, entertainment and lifestyle coverage.

Early drafts had gone further in what critics at home and abroad saw as discrimination toward Arabs, who have long said they are treated in Israel as second-class citizens. Clauses that were dropped after political wrangling would have enshrined in law establishment of Jewish-only communities. A more vaguely-worded final version said: “The state views the development of Jewish settlement as a national value and will act to encourage and promote its establishment.” Even after the changes, critics said the new law will deepen a sense of alienation within the Arab minority. It comprises mainly descendants of Palestinians who remained on their land during the conflict between Arabs and Jews that culminated in the war of 1948 surrounding Israel’s creation.
