twitterVivian Lake Of course not, that's why they're buying them.

twitterViktor Kovalenko Probably the papers can secure some editorial independence. But it depends fully on editors and their intentions to stay independent.

twitterJustin Boucher I don't think either of those papers are "editorial independent" anyway!
