The Philadelphia Inquirer reports on the latest shoe-drop from the K-R sale:

Local ownership by a group with diversified business and political interests could cast the papers' editorial independence into doubt, some observers have worried.

Raising a couple of small questions:
1) Compared to what?
2) Could we shed any light on who the "observers" are and how their worry was expressed?
3) Come to think of it, if anyone has his or her decoder ring set to "news waffle," could you post a rendition in English? 'Preciate it.

1. If someone at a paper starts kissing a different bum than is currently being kissed, that's always a Problem.

2. Observer, n - friend of the writer after a few beers last night.

3. "We are worried that new owners might subcribe do a different version of TRVTH than the one we hold, because ours is right and theirs isn't."

Well, yeah, but were we actually close enough to hear them worrying, or did we have to take their word for it?
