Schadenfreude

On the heels of the devastating news that the NY Times might be sold for $3 and a bottle of Ripple as early as May, comes this terrible announcement:

Hearst Corp. put Seattle’s oldest newspaper, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, up for sale on Friday and said that if it can’t find a buyer in the next 60 days the paper would likely close or continue to exist only online.

[...]

Hearst said it is not considering buying The Seattle Times, the city’s other daily paper, which has handled non-news functions for the P-I since 1983 under a federally approved joint operating agreement.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch.
