What with the Seattle P-I shutting down its print operations, and SF Chronicle clinging to life, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked Attorney General Eric Holder to make changes in antitrust restrictions so that papers can work jointly to save money. Oy. According to Sacramento Business Journal, "Pelosi asked the [Department of Justice] to consider 'not only the number of daily and weekly newspapers in the Bay Area, but also the other sources of news' that compete with them. In effect, Pelosi is asking for a broader view of competing news sources that might allow struggling newspapers to cut deals to stay alive." SF Chronicle and the Examiner, as well as Seattle Times and the Seattle P-I, have worked together in the past until "losses from one paper threatened to hurt the other," resulting in lawsuits and court battles.
