Tribune Files for Bankruptcy

File this under “couldn’t happen to a better paper”. According to MSNBC, the Tribune Co. has filed for bankruptcy protection. The Tribune owns the Chicago Tribune and the L.A. Times among others. Quite frankly I’m glad to see the paper in hot water.

I’m all for freedom of the press, but this is the organization that used its both the Chicago Tribune and the L.A. Times as bully pulpits to call for the repeal of the Second Amendment in response to the Heller decision. To see both of these major papers calling for a shredding of the very Bill of Rights that protects their right to a free press and free speech is beyond the pale, and it shows the callous disregard the far left has for the basic rights of Americans.

Many readers at the time vowed to vote with their feet, and it looks like it’s finally making a difference.

Until next time!!!
