Who is Richard L Connor and What Does He Want from the Sun Gazette?
Thanks for this blog and for giving us an alternative to the same-old same-old propaganda from 2100 Clarendon Boulevard.
I did a Web search on the name "Richard L. Connor", who apparently controls the Sun Gazette and other local newspapers formerly owned by American Community Newspapers.
First thing that popped up was this: "Maine Today Media accuses former CEO of stealing $500,000".
Oh, Rich Connor was also sued by Wilkes-Barre Publishing for $250,000 that he allegedly misappropriated while running the Wilkes Barre Times-Leader.
So what does Rich want from the Sun Gazette?
Isn't it enough that Northern Virginia's premier Nanny Newsie (sorry Patch editors) Scott McCaffrey is on the executive committee of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce? How far are the plutocrats going to take the local media anyway? I'm surprised the weeklies and their blogs aren't running full page infomercials from REITs that are looking to totally urbanize inside-the-beltway. Stay tuned.
