Casey Statement on the Sale of the Inquirer and Daily News

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement today on the sale of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News:

“My first concern is for the employees of the Inquirer and Daily News.  I hope that the lenders will put a high priority on treating these hard working men and women fairly and respectfully.  The Inquirer and Daily News are institutions in Philadelphia and a vital part of the local economy.  The papers and the employees have been through a lot.  At the end of the day, I hope that the new owners value what the papers mean to the region and that there can be a return to stability and security.”
