For months now, the Tribune Company, owners of what's left of Newsday, as well as the LA Times, Baltimore Sun, AM New York and ten other papers—as well as South Park and the Chicago Cubs—have been begging for bids for all or part of the company. They've enticed the likes of David Geffen and Ron Burkle into putting together bid packages, even making potential bidders fly to Chicago. (Eww!)
After four months of this endless dull hand-wringing, now it looks like Tribune is going to be all "Oh you know what? Maybe we'll just sell off some TV stations and borrow some money! Never mind! Tee hee!" What the fuck, yo? With the brain space we wasted paying attention to this, we displaced some important plot points from "Three's Company." Chrissy and Janet did what now?
