Philadelphia's Democratic machine is under fire after officials arranged for private, anonymous cash payments to buy out the contract of the unpopular school superintendent in the nation's eighth-largest public school district.
Former Daily News editor Zack Stalberg, who led the paper when it was owned by Knight-Ridder Inc., said the turmoil at the papers makes him "nostalgic for chain journalism."
"Certainly there's cause for concern when you have highly opinionated and well-connected people in the deal," Mr. Stalberg said. "It comes down to how they behave and who they put in management positions."
