Add the owner of NewsCorp to the list of names that want the Tribune Co. Rupert Murdoch wants to buy the Tribune-owned New York Newsday, so he can consolidate back offices between that paper and the New York Post, the paper he owns.
But Murdoch owning the Tribune Co.? It may not be likely (because of the regulation mess), but the thought of it give me (and any other Chicagoan) shudders. Remember when he owned the Sun-Times? Enough said.
