Editor & Publisher magazine says there was a rumor going around that Examiner owner Phil Anschutz wanted to buy the Chronicle from Hearst Corp., but that Anschutz’s spokesman says the rumor isn’t true. Also untrue is the rumor about Anschutz wanting to buy Knight Ridder, says Anschutz spokesman Jim Monaghan in Denver. Instead, Anschutz is looking forward to starting another free daily in Balitmore on April 5.
