Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation has emerged as the likely buyer of Tribune's Newsday, which is on Long Island. I am writing about this for my Friday column and will also bang out an editorial.
Below are some links to stories about the proposed sale of Long Island's Newsday to News Corporation.
Broadcasting & Cable also went at the story from the FCC angle.
Curious as to what readers think about the News Corporation owning Newsday? I oppose the deal. The deal would give News Corporation an unprecedented reach in one of the nation's most important media markets. Murdoch would own two television stations, the New York Post, Newsday, and the Wall Street Journal.
