Liberals Caught Years before They Spoke

The Post Intellegencer is a rather liberal Seattle newspaper that is having some problems:

The Times has been trying to get out of the agreement with the P-I's parent company, The Hearst Corp., since April 2003, saying the agreement is no longer profitable because of changes in the market. The Times seeks to invoke a clause in the contract that allows either paper to end the agreement if it suffers three consecutive years of losses.

Hearst argued that the Times shouldn't be allowed to count losses caused by extraordinary events, such as the 49-day strike against both dailies in late 2000. The Times argues that under the language in the contract, no such exception exists, and the court agreed.

"Storms are an act of God," wrote Bertram Scudder, "and nobody can be held socially responsible for the weather."
