    I hope, pray, beseech that if they do buy Trib, Gannett spins off the LAT into the hands of a local buyer.

    Those "synergies" mentioned? Jobs. A lot of them.

    Email reaction from a friend at one of Tribune's Florida newspapers (he'd predicted a few months ago that a buyer might emerge): "At least it isn't GateHouse."

    Given the absolute fuckjob they did to my pension without thinking twice, I wouldn't hold your breath.

    Pull that shit out if you can.

    The chains are all pretty much doing the same things. Not sure it matters who owns you.

    Gannett at least seems to be committed to print/web journalism.

    And Gannett's best-known issue was a spate of flavor of the day directives coming from corporate. That doesn't seem to happen so much anymore. Too busy throwing deck chairs overboard, I guess.

    Gannett eats its young.

    Looks like the Big G is cornering the market on newspapers. Big Brother is definitely going to roll some heads.
