U-T San Diego’s publisher mistakenly told a GOP women’s gathering Monday that he was in negotiations to buy the Chicago-based Tribune Co.—owner of the Los Angeles Times and other major newspapers.

Late Monday night, U-T San Diego CEO John Lynch told Patch that publisher Doug Manchester, “who had just returned from traveling, misunderstood [a question from the audience] and indicated the U-T was interested in the Tribune.”
