Ridder Agonistes

Posted by: Jon Fine on March 15, 2006

Tony Ridder’s regrets, as told to the New York Times’ Kit Seelye.

A big one: the San Jose Mercury News—sort of the hometown paper of both his youthful and mogulish years—is hanging out on the market with another for-sale sign on it, again, and the buyers this time are likely to be a damn sight less kind to it than McClatchy would.

If Mr. Ridder is so attached to the Mercury News, perhaps he must invest the money that is getting for its sale and buy the paper that he loves so much.
