The shrinking newspaper market

Looks like there may soon be even fewer newspapers in PA. See the following article on a coming chain sale: http://nytimes.com/2006/03/12/business/media/13knight.web.html?ei=5094&en=69f43cc8c917143f&hp=&ex=1142226000&partner=homepage&pagewanted=print

Here's the note on Pennsylvania

"While the Knight Ridder papers are profitable, some are more troubled than others and could be a drag on McClatchy's bottom line. Analysts speculate that the company could shut down The Philadelphia Daily News and possibly sell The Inquirer, since the business climate in Philadelphia is sluggish and the papers face tough competition from a ring of suburban dailies. On the other hand, they say, The Inquirer generates a lot of cash, something McClatchy will need as it goes into debt to pay for Knight Ridder."

Quite interesting.

Unfortunately, he doesn't look like Milton.

I think we should be looking that cat up and try to get some face time.

For now but that will change.

I can't even post the word "test" without having it removed.

I can. Am posting about police and horses and stuff. Am sure it will eventually be deleted as soon as Milton is finished trying to contact your superiors. LOL!!!!

Yes, that should keep him pretty busy, I would imagine. I do have another theory - there are two anons, working separately. One is our Milton and the other one is whoever is in charge of the New Jersey forums mentioned in the article that had the link to our blog.

that's a pretty good theory...you are probably right.

Yeah, and I would bet money that anon is 60 ish, old school, and hard headed. Note the reference to "telling your superiors", kind of like "telling your Mom" that you are out of line! Old tattle tale!
