If that happens, those newspapers will immediately be regarded as right-wing fringe newspapers not worthy of attention...

... even before there are any changes in staffing or policy.

Gee Katinga, I wish they would buy the Minneapolis, MN Star Tribune too. It is such an ultra liberal company. Their cartoonist mocks Republicans over and over and over.
That is why I cancelled my subscription:)

It really makes a lot of sense for Conservatives to buy media outlets.

The opportunity to serve a niche market that has roughly half the population as its' consumers seems like a natural. I am guessing even in a bad market, making money in the news business and print in general is a sure winner for a conservative company.

News print is a dying business. The brothers will most likely rip them down to their parts, & create a single frozen waffle manufacturing company, or similar... something that actually makes a net positive contribution to society.
