An independent journal about the Gannett Co. and the news industry's digital transition
I don’t know how much attention the Justice Dept pays to individual communities, but a part of the hang up could be Phoenix. In that market, Gannett owns the newspaper (the Arizona Republic) a TV station (NBC affiliate KPNX) and will be getting (if the deal goes through) two other stations, a Belo independent station (KTVK - which currently has an excellent news operation) and KASW (the CW station which doesn’t have a news operation). Gannett would end up 2 out of 5 English language TV news outlets plus the Republic.
Corporate says the request -- the Justice Department's second -- isn't unusual...............but as usual Jim is trying to make it into something. For more clicks!
Not all news is sensational. He reported that the request was made and that corporate issued a press release about it. It could be a big deal but in my opinion Jim did not make it so. All Jim did is let us know it happened.
Reporting nothing is nothing. Jim doesn't report a great deal. Why this?I stand by my original post Jim.
So we can piss off people like you & then read your nomsensical nonsense.
