MediaNews acquires another newspaper - no, not that one

MediaNews Group is still in the merger business. The Denver-based newspaper chain has acquired The Gardner News, a family owned newspaper that circulates in central Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Terms of the deal are confidential.

MediaNews is the leading contender to buy the Orange County Register, though talks between MediaNews and Register-owner Freedom Communications recently stalled over price.

Ahhh, nothing like the smell of another bankrupt medianews takeover. If you liked working at your old company, get use to not liking your new one.

I'm sure the newsroom is jumping for joy.

" We are most pleased to be able to expand our portfolio with this wonderful community newspaper."

AKA - gobble-up cluster and destroy
