Canada’s TransContintental Printing — and its plans to use non-union pressmen — have placed it in the middle of “a game of chicken between the Teamsters and the Hearsts” involving the threatened San Francisco Chronicle newspaper, reports the Columbia Journalism Review.
The piece examines the “starkly different” local coverage of two Hearst-owned newspapers, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which folded this week but for a spectral online version, and the Chronicle. CJR argues the coverage “tells a behind-the-scenes story of the Hearst family’s differing financial interests.”
