No Bailout, please! The Dinosaurs in the printed MSM can quietly go into the night just as the real ones did 65 million years ago.

They would have to give him an entire truck load to keep him in a good mood. Every time I see him he looks as though he is in perpetual constipation.

Didn't some billionaire Mexican invest millions into the NY Slimes to keep it afloat?

Unfortunately IMHO part of the Baraqqi’s plan is to use these failures to nationalize the media. Yes it is mostly pro liberal already but this plan will make it worse.

Liberal rags are literally dying by the hour and they deserve to because they refused to tell the truth about Obummer and company! I hope their respective deaths and that of the MSM are rife with horrible intense pain, anguish and suffering because that is what they have inflicted on us, the American people!

Good news! But Chapter 11 will let them continue on. When they actually just stop operating is when I cheer!

Look on the bright side. He already has them at his disposal. Net gain - zero.

I buy the Tribune more often than the Sun-Times. The Tribune has longer, more detailed, articles about national and international politics, and the Tribune has a better business section. The Sun-Times’ horoscope is about five times the size of the Tribune horoscope. The Sun-Times usually has a lot more ads for x-rated movie theaters, adult video stores, and massage parlors.

The writers there produce a product to please their Hyde Park and Lincoln Park friends, so that covers about 200 subsriptions.
