Paging Bill Binnie – The Nashua Telegraph Is Up For Sale!

Bill Binnie has been buying up media in New Hampshire.  WBIN-TV!  He just scooped up some radio stations.  And hey, wouldn’t a major Granite State newspaper be a great edition?  I think so, so how about the Nashua Telegraph?

That’s right, the family that owns that liberal bird-cage liner (based out of Pennsylvania–say hi to Mike Brunelle for me) is getting out of the Newspaper business, including the Bedford Journal, the Hollis Brookline Journal, the Merrimack Journal and Milford Cabinet, liberal rags to the last.

In addition to The Telegraph, Independent Publications’ holdings in New Hampshire includes the Bedford Journal, the Hollis Brookline Journal, the Merrimack Journal and Milford Cabinet.

Publishing assets of another company owned by IPI, McLean Communications Inc., based in Manchester, were sold to Yankee Publishing Inc. of Dublin on Friday.

McLean publishes New Hampshire Business Review, New Hampshire Magazine, New Hampshire Home and Parenting New Hampshire. Yankee is a family publishing business that produces some of New England’s most well-known titles.

The Telegraph will continue until a buyer is found and we can only hope it’s not the parent of the Monitor or Herald or Sentinel or whomever owns these other fish-wrappers in our state.  We could use another voice from the center right to balance things out a bit.  So Bill, call Jim Bender and some of your Republican buddies and see if they want to invest in trying to run a newspaper the right way.

I have no idea what that is but if you’d like to leave a spot on your editorial page for GraniteGrok, we’d be happy to make the liberals buy subscriptions just so we can make them bleed from their eyes.
