Twin Cities StarTribune & Pioneer?
McClatchy makes the top bid for the Knight-Ridder news chain. That conglomerate already owns the StarTribune, and now it's going to go after the Pioneer Press, creating a one-newspaper monopoly in the Twin Cities. Although I do like the Strib's liberal leanings, my respect for the Press is based on its independence from the former. Having a carbon copy across the river will just invite redundancies that's unhealthy for media consumption.
