It's Official: U-T San Diego Is Buying North County Times

How depressing this is. I've been a UT subscriber since the 70s. I've noticed how the editorials have become much more right-leaning since Manchester took over, but not until the over-the-top editorializing following the Democratic convention did I realize how totally owned the paper is. I started exploring other options, and was seriously considering dropping the UT. I have been getting the Sunday edition of the NC Times for a couple of months through a great Groupon deal and thought it fairly balanced. Then yesterday, Monday, there was a copy of the NC Times on my driveway and I thought "It's a sign!". I had made up my mind to make the change, and then yesterday evening on the news I hear about the UT takeover. How depressing!
