‘Chicago Tribune’ Readers Respond to Deal

By: E&P Staff

The Chicago Tribune put up a message board this morning for feedback on the sale of its parent company, Tribune, and the coming offloading of the Chicago Cubs.

Here are the first six quite sharp comments.

I think this may actually help the Chicago Tribune, I believe that newspapers tend to operate better as privately held companies. Hopefully, this will benefit the public too.

Terrific–going private means better long-term decisions regarding newsroom. Selling Cubs makes it better. Good for readers, and all parties.

Good–at least in the fact that the Conflict Of Interest journalism will finally end between the Tribune newspaper’s biased coverage toward the Cubs and against the Sox.

I wish someone would explain how the money works. How can Zell pay 13 billion dollars for the company , but only put in $300 million?

Deeply mixed but better Zell than some outsider.
