LA Weekly on Tuesday published a story about a rumored purchase of the Tribune Company by the Koch Brothers.
As you might imagine, this has gotten great attention in the media world:
The latest rumor about the next owner of the L.A. Times, which is for sale, is a doozy. A bombshell. It's a doozy wrapped in a bombshell exploding inside a Drudge siren. Multiple sources tell L.A. Weekly that Charles and David Koch -- the infamous right-wing billionaire brothers -- are considering an offer on either the Tribune Co. newspaper group, which includes the L.A. Times, the Chicago Tribune and the Baltimore Sun or the entire Tribune Co., which includes more than 20 stations like WGN and KTLA Channel 5.

Oh, please do it.
That would be a huge dollop of STFU with a drizzle of schadenfreude on top for the lefties to swallow!
It almost puts the lefties in the position of having to root for Murdoch.
If they do I might have to renew my long-since-cancelled subscription to the Scum Sentinel.
Newspapers are a dying medium -- and they'll find their way to extinction soon enough, whether the ownership is liberal or conservative.
I'm more interested in what the Koch brothers might do with the twenty TV stations -- all of which, I believe, are unaffiliated independents (like WGN, Chicago, which has a national footprint, via cable).
GO FOR IT GUYS!!!
The Chicago Tribune in the hands of the Koch brothers would make Col. McCormick proud.
There will be a run on ductape to wrap around all the liberals heads about to detonate....
Since their refineries are “independent,” that would be a good fit.
Memo to Koch brothers
If you going sell any network keep Antenna TV
