E.W. Scripps won’t disclose who bought Rocky Mountain News’ name and URL

“What the hell?” writes press critic Michael Roberts. “Presumably, the main reason an individual or business would want to buy the Rocky’s intellectual property would be to use it to launch a new physical or online news product. And it would seem difficult to maximize such an investment in secret.” Still, details of the transaction are hush-hush.
