    They dodged a bullet with this one.

    Unless, of course, JRC decides it wants a part of southwestern Connecticut.

    Gannett is making a big mistake. Why play hardball with the union when the newsroom is that small and you can probably dominate an extremely wealthy market that is contiguous to a larger paper that you already own in Westchester?

    This would be a good fit for more than just JRC. Singleton especially, since he owns Bridgeport. The new Danbury owner. NYT and Newhouse.

    Singleton badly wanted Stamford and Greenwich, then bought Danbury from CNHI as a consolation prize after losing to Gannett. Got to think he'll submit a strong bid.

    The union should be careful what it wishes for. There are worse operations out there than Gannett.

    Agreed, except giving up your union contract right off the bat would have been horrible. It took Gan-fucking-nett something like 14 years in Rochester before they had the balls and brains to declare an impasse and stop abiding by the contract. Think of all the 30- and 40- and 50-somethings in Connecticut who would benefit by having a safety net like that with the next owner.
