Are newspaper execs violating antitrust law with their hush-hush meeting in Chicago?

Slate | Associated Press
The head of one law firm's antitrust practice wouldn't be shocked if the Department of Justice takes an interest in possible newspaper collusion. "There are a lot of people in the Antitrust Division who don't have a whole lot on their plates because their merger work has dried up," Kenneth Ewing tells Ben Sheffner. "The staffing is there, and they have the opportunity to go do something." But based on what he's heard so far, Ewing doesn't believe DoJ or private plaintiffs have the goods. || Related Doc Searls and Scott Rosenberg posts.
