    If an updated version of "A Christmas Carol" were to be done with Sam Zell cast as Scrooge, who would play the three ghosts of Christmas Past?

    Well, it's ghosts of past, present and future. Joseph Pulitzer or somebody like that would be past.

    Rod Blagovich, playing Scrooge's nephew, would come by the office shaking Zell down for charity, the Blago Retirement Fund.

    Hearst for Past.

    Murdoch's solid, for Present.

    When the Death ghost takes Scrooge to his future grave, rather than whimpering and seeing the errors of his ways and begging for a second chance, he dances on it!

    C'mon, ghost of journalism future is a 13-year-old kid who writes headlines like Cong. 2 L8 4 Car Biz $$$ on his handheld device while sitting on his mom's couch in India.
