Waco Tribune-Herald Bought By Warren Buffett
In Buffett We Trust
Another Texas paper has been bought by billionaire Warren Buffett, meaning more good news in the world of Texas journalism.
Their publisher's note that day said the paper's opinion pages would "champion more conservative views in our unsigned editorials, and we intend to ferret out more conservative voices in our columns." Because previously the paper had been wild-eyed liberal, apparently.
Earlier this month Buffett bought the Bryan-College Station Eagle.
He's made clear he wants to invest in local coverage, and will not make the papers he buys voice his political opinions.
Whether the Tribune-Herald will continue to loudly proclaim its trust in God, we'll have to wait and see.
