Resource ID: #


The Wall Street Journal looks at the efforts of Frank A. Blethen, the Seattle Times publisher, to "extend four generations of family control over one of the last major independent papers in the U.S." The story points to Blethen's inclination to rule "more by his heart than his head." It describes Blethen's battle against the offer of Knight-Ridder, owner of 49.5% of the Seattle Times, to get control of the paper.The analysis sheds light on the circumstances surrounding the strike at the Seattle Times in November 2000.
