Could be Worse (no Murdoch's involved)
The excellence of the Knight Ridder news service has made many bloggers nervous about the fact that the Knight Ridder newspaper chain is up for sale. The McClatchy Company, a medium-sized California based newspaper publisher just bought them. Could have been worse.
However, McClatchy wants to sell the San Jose Mercury News, the employer of the uncoverers of the Duke Cunningham scandal who have improved the country and provided me with great entertainment for months. I hope the buyer appreciates them (I hear MZM inc is looking to expand in a new line of business now that they can't buy favors).
Also some paper in Philadelfia.
