Uh-oh. Does this mean I won't be able to quote form the Wall Street Journal?
From the editorial page, you never could.
57% surge in the stock price just on the announcement? Someone thinks there's some value in this purchase for the shareholders.
If this turns onto the NY Post, or FOX News, this could be a bad thing. Even if they left it as is, it's still not as good as it used to be. This is why there used to be laws against this type of thing. No organization, and especially no individual, should be able to own too much of the media. I'm sure there are people here who wouldn't like Soros doing this, why is it ok for Murdoch?
Free market is great, but unbridled capitalism is something else entirely. Looking at other countries who have this, or even to our own past, we see the potential for abuse. And none of us wants that.
The Bancroft family is going to reject it!
They deserve one another.
HA! Not exactly my favorite bunch of people, but good on them. By all rights, this shouldn't have been able to go through anyway, but the gov has been asleep at the wheel when it comes to this type of thing lately.
I agree on all points. Where's Teddy Roosevelt at when we need him?
errr... probably the last place we left him...
I'm sorry to be the one to break it to you, but I'm afraid he's passed away. Quite some time ago actually. I'd say his ideal live on, but sadly, most of them don't.

The Democratic party is a far cry from what it used to be also.
Whatever that means. I specifically referring to progressive Republicanism, which in fact died with Taft and was buried by Coolidge.
And Clinton did it too. So's you're old man.
In fact, where is 'Rat to level the boom on you for that. I know he's seen fit to do it to me over a much more apt analogy. Too bad he's on the road...
You're correct. They're much further right now. Sometimes in good ways, Clinton was much more fiscally conservative than Bush. Sometimes in not so good ways, like when far too many of them jumped on the Iraq bandwagon back in '03. I'm sure to you they've all moved left even more, if that's possible, despite all evidence to the contrary.
