Update on Morning Call Parent Company
Today's New York Times has an update on the ongoing effort to sell the Tribune Company, the Morning Call's corporate parent. The Chandler family, which had owned the Call, the LA Times and other papers before selling to Tribune, is reportedly interested in purchasing Tribune's newspapers. The family's motive appears, however, to be strictly mercenary, and not some larger sense that the papers have a public interest obligation.
