Add: Gammon says the Guardian’s joining the Examiner fold also makes economic sense:
The sale, for example, will allow the Guardian to achieve cost savings, because the two papers will be able to eliminate redundancies. The papers won’t need two circulation departments, and they’ll be able to share production, advertising, and editorial costs. The Guardian’s arts and culture coverage could be a boon for the Examiner. And the Examiner’s hard-news coverage could sharpen the Guardian’s news pages. The Examiner also brings printing expertise to the deal; in fact, the Examiner’s printing press in San Francisco prints numerous Bay Area publications, including the Express.
