"When a Local Paper Gets New Owners, Partisan Strife Hits Its Doorstep," is the online headline over a New York Times article covering the inevitable grumbling that ensues whenever someone who is not a lock-step liberal purchases a newspaper. The Adelson family got similar treatment from the Times when they bought the Las Vegas Review-Journal. As did Rupert Murdoch when his company bought the Wall Street.
The California paper that is the subject of the article on the front of the Times business section has a circulation of 8,000.
It's actually comical that these cases seem to be the only instances in which the Times takes complaints about media bias seriously. It's almost as if the Times is trying to warn off conservatives thinking of maybe buying a newspaper — watch out, because the minute you take over the paper, or even try, every complaint from a reader or grumpy employee or former employee is going to be grist for breathless Times coverage.
