McClatchy Newspapers Bonds Rated as Junk

If you sometimes search to find something compelling to read in the Idaho Statesman, you won't be surprised by the news that its parent The McClatchy Co. is in trouble.

Hahn reports that IACI members have been asked to spend at least $5,000 a year for a seat at the group’s policy table.
