Lee Enterprises will close Billings call center

Historically in the bag for ethics-free right wing extremists like Steve Daines and Mike Rounds Lee newspapers are media cripples.

After gutting its capital bureau Lee Newspapers of Montana is cutting more staff.

Lee Newspapers of Montana could survive as part of a Bismarck Tribune, Rapid City Journal, Casper Star-Trib marriage and not become part of a Gannett takeover.

But who has the huevos to pull that together?

Lee stock is trading lower today and Gannett's is trending upward.
