How the owners cut out competition

Note this from the CJR timeline:

"1947 - Newhouse associate Edwin Russell purchases the Harrisburg Patriot and Evening News
1948 - Newhouse purchases the Harrisburg Telegraph. Less than two months later the newspaper goes out of business"

And they are worth billions:

"2003 - Forbes magazine estimates the combined worth of Si. Jr. and Donald Newhouse at $15 billion "

No wonder they delete any information about their ownership from the forums.

If you don't like the way PennLive.com treats you, why do you hang out there? They have just as much right to police their forums in a manner that they consider to be appropriate as you do to ask (or order) an unwelcome guest to leave your house.
