Singleton's newspaper hero? Hearst

Here's a link to a Q&A MediaNews CEO Dean Singleton did with one of his columnists at The Denver Post. Highlights include his praise for William Randolph Hearst, his love of chardonnay and his candid comments on how MS has reduced his mobility. He gets around on a scooter and worries that his body will become unusable before his brain deteriorates. He says he doesn't use Facebook or Twitter, and is still a print guy who likes reading a newspaper. As for the future, he says that he hopes his company shows growth in new media that equals its decline in print, "and I think we are a year away from that."
