PeterFXCassidy: Sam Zell was insane to buy the chain, silly to move into an industry he knew nothing about and suicidal to pay what he did for properties facing falling margins. The former owners were irresponsible to enter into a transaction that saddled the chain with so much new, unsupportable and unnecessary debt that it would virtually guarantee financial calamity. The photographers didn't deserve this abuse to them and their craft. The readers didn't deserve to have photography relegated to a sideline enterprise in their paper and the reporters didn't need to have more work hung around their necks because Wall Street helped another monied psychopath buy a bobble to sate his ego.

This is the story of our times. I dunno how many industries have been left reeling and dying because Wall Street invented a crisis and set off a chain of acquisitions that provided no real value for anyone but the brokerages who managed the deals. The shame of it is that so many newspapers were murdered this way that were not in bad shape, had local monopolies and solid margins still, even with loss of classifies. If Wall Street had any sense they would have advised local papers to save their money and invest in the development of local newspaper branded Craigslist and AngiesList services and played with useable models for local journalism, you know, stuff that sorry superannuated brats like like Sam Zell could not help them with.
