    Re: Breaking News:The Evil Empire strikes again

    Man, I was a paperboy for the Mpls Tribune (morning paper) and my buddy delivered the Mpls Star (afternoon paper) when I was a munchkin. They merged sometime a while back and formed the Star & Tribune. Who knows what they will call themselves now.

    This happened in Atlanta. We used to have The Atlanta Journal, and The Atlanta Constitution. One came out in the AM, the other in the PM, and had really contrasting views. Now it's just the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and they kept the point of view that I do not care for.

    *fighting the urge to turn this into political thread*

    It appears as though the owner of the Star Tribune has now purchased The Pioneer Press. Should be interesting to see how this pans out being the Trib and The press seem to always have so many different viewpoints on various topics. I for one do not agree with this merger, so much for difference of opinion among our local major newspapers from this point on.

    For the sake of keeping their readers, they probably would not change their style and viewpoints.

    Re: Breaking News:The Evil Empire strikes again

    I will just make this comment brief because it falls in the lines of political. But I think the biggest problem will be when the next election rolls around. One paper was strongly democartic and the other strongly promoted Rebublican views. I have a feeling that is when we will see most of the drama surface with the merger. Nobody will really think much of it now but just waite until the next election. I just dont see good things coming from this at all. Like I said though I will wait and see how it pans out. For nopw I am keeping my pioneer press subscribtion.
