Pelosi writes to Justice on saving newspapers

Government control over the media? I was waiting for this...

When Obama creates a food and water czar, we will really be up shits creek, because that is right out of the Joseph Stalin playbook. Stalin starved millions of Ukrainians with that little stunt.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, worried about the fate of The Chronicle and other financially struggling newspapers, urged the Justice Department today to consider giving Bay Area papers more leeway to merge or consolidate business operations to stay afloat.

In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, released by Pelosi's office, the San Francisco Democrat asked the department to weigh the public benefit of saving The Chronicle and other papers from closure against the agency's anti-trust mission to guard against anti-competitive behavior.
