Editor & Publsher Magazine has profiled Richard Scudder, 93, who is Dean Singleton’s silent partner in the MediaNews Group, the company that is poised to become the Bay Area’s largest newspaper operator. The two appear to agree on everything except President Bush. Singleton is a longtime friend and supporter of the Bush family. Scudder despises the 43rd president, calling him an “idiot” who has done “incalculable harm to our country.” How do they get along so well if they have such different views on the president? “We just don’t talk about it,” said Scudder.
