Comment: LA Times = Chicago Tribune

(See in situ)


LA Times = Chicago Tribune

Not sure if anyone has pointed this out, but the LA Times is owned by the Tribune Co. so both of them containing the same story isn't the same thing as two different media sources carrying the story... They often share exact articles. The exposure is good, though.

The LA Times has belonged to Tribune Co. since 2000 when their parent company Times Mirror Company merged with Tribune Co. in an $8.3 billion deal (Times Mirror also brought Newsday, Hartford Courant, and The Baltimore Sun in with the deal).

They also own...

  • Burbank Leader, Burbank, California
  • Daily Pilot, Costa Mesa and Newport Beach, California
  • Glendale News-Press, Glendale, California
  • Huntington Beach Independent, Huntington Beach, California
  • Valley Sun, La Cañada Flintridge, California
  • Costline Pilot, Laguna Beach, California
  • Pasadena Sun, Pasadena, California
  • Hartford Courant, Hartford, Connecticut
  • South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
  • Orlando Sentinel, Orlando, Florida
  • Baltimore Sun, Baltimore, Maryland
  • The Morning Call, Allentown, Pennsylvania
  • Daily Press, Newport News, Virginia

    Which, to be honest, I don't have a huge problem with, because most of those newspapers were going broke and wouldn't exist if Tribune Co. hadn't bought them up. Its called economies of scale. =oP
