That’s according to a newsman who quit after Rupert Murdoch bought the Chicago Sun-Times in 1984. “You have to believe that someone willing to shell out five big ones for a trophy like Dow Jones will be far more sensitive and thoughtful than to send in the clowns who pillaged the Sun-Times 23 years ago,” says Alan Mutter. || Rem Rieder: “There’s little reason to think that Murdoch won’t ultimately be Murdoch.” || More reaction from Dean Singleton, the Guild’s Linda Foley and others.
