The secret lives of private jets

ProPublica got its hands on a list of privately owned corporate jets that were kept off the government's air-traffic tracking system and so could not be tracked by the public. The list includes jets owned by several newspaper companies:
Owners of newspapers that have fought for access to public records, including Journal Enterprises, owner of the Albuquerque Journal, and Sam Zell, chairman of the Tribune Co., which owns the Los Angeles Times and the Chicago Tribune.
Journal Enterprises told ProPublica it would take its plane off the list. Sam Zell's Tribune Co. declined to comment.

Gannett, which owns USA Today, also owns a blocked jet. USA Today ran a version of the ProPublica story and included this fact in the article.
