The Tribune: A Tale of Two Stories
Earlier this morning, The Chicago Tribune reported on its web site that its parent company, The Tribune Company, has reached a deal to sell the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field, and a stake in Comcast SportsNet Chicago. The reported winner: the Ricketts family, who proposed a combined package of around $900-million. The thing is, the news story cites an unnamed source for the story. When we sought to confirm the report, this is the statement we received from a Tribune Company spokesman.
