The New York Times left-wing New Jersey cousin, the Newark Star-Ledger, bankrupted by unions it ceaselessly promotes . . .

centernewsnetwork.com:

New Jersey’s very own version of the New York Times, the Newark Star-Ledger, will stop the presses permanently at year’s end unless it wins major concessions from its production unions. The newspaper, according to publisher Richard Vezza, feels “pushed into a corner” by the unions.

The Star-Ledger’s lament is made without a trace of irony despite its relentless vilification of other businesses threatened and destroyed by union tactics.

The unions reacted predictably:

“Vezza’s announcement that he will cease publication unless a settlement is reached with all the unions is another sad and pathetic attempt to pound all of our union brothers and sisters into a state of submission,” said Ed Shown, president of the Council of Star-Ledger Unions and one of the Teamsters locals.

 Perhaps the Star-Ledger can again follow the lead of its mentor, the New York Times, and crawl, hat in hand, to Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.
