Citing The McClatchy Co.’s high debt and shrinking revenue, a Morningstar report declares that the chain’s slumping stock “could be worthless.”

Tom Corbett — the Morningstar analyst who this summer similarly dismissed GateHouse Media Inc. shares as having a “fair value” of zero — said debt from McClatchy’s 2006 acquisition of Knight Ridder, added to declining revenue, means that the company will look to satisfy its creditors rather than its shareholders.
