Singleton's interviews

In an interview with paidcontent.org writer David Kaplan, MediaNews capo Dean Singleton blames his woes on the economy, defends the Associated Press, and promises to reorganize MediaNews' advertising sales into a single entity.

“The biggest thing we need right now is an improved economy, because at least 60 percent of the revenue problem we’re facing today is good-old fashioned economic recession.”

And earlier, talking with Editor and Publisher, Singleton discussed the upcoming presidential election, saying neither candidate has captured his support, but many of his MediaNews editors are leaning towards Barack Obama.

He said neither Obama nor McCain would make his top list for what is essentially "the next CEO of the country."
