Doug Manchester’s Media Mocking

by The Editors on December 8, 2011

Doug ManchesterThe San Deigo Union-Tribune’s new owner Papa Doug Manchester is getting clowned all the way out in New York City according to this post on In their story New Slogan Proves San Diego Paper Is Owned By Nut they said:

Why would a successful businessman pay so much money for a media property that its previous owners couldn’t wait to unload? Well, a couple reasons. First, the paper is reportedly profitable at the moment, and Doug Manchester, like many first-time newspaper owners before him, probably thinks that he is smart enough to not only stay profitable, but increase profits, for long period of time. (He is wrong.) And second, because Doug Manchester is a “conservative and anti-tax” nut who plans to use the paper to push a “pro-business” (meaning pro-Doug Manchster’s financial interests!) agenda.

Yep. Sounds about right.

Back in about 83-84 I would guess… I had the (mis)fortune of working on Doug’s La Jolla house… I have NEVER met a more pompous jerk in my life. Doug you were a donkey’s butt then and you still are.
