|Warren Buffett - "Vulture" Capitalist?|
My question is this: Do you think that Warren Buffett will be excoriated and labeled a "vulture capitalist, as Romney was, for buying the Manassas News and Messenger newspaper company and a Happy New Year firing to all of its employees, barely six months after buying it? My guess is not only no, but the mainstream media will virtually ignore it. He is, after all, one of "them".
WARREN BUFFETT-OWNED NEWSPAPER SHUTS DOWN
by WARNER TODD HUSTON 31 Dec 2012
After 143 years in print, the Manassas News & Messenger of Manassas, Virginia has turned off its printing presses for good.
The Manassas News is another in a long chain of failed local newspapers that have ceased publication over the last decade, unable to compete with social media, electronic media, and cable TV delivering news as it happens. The paper stopped publication in November.
