The Wall Street Journal reports that the IRS is fighting with Examiner owner Philip Anschutz to force the Denver-based billionaire oilman to pay back taxes totaling $143.6 million. Trial is set for June 23.

Not a word about the case has appeared in Anschutz’s papers — the San Francisco, Baltimore or Washington Examiners or the San Francisco City Star.

The Chronicle hasn’t mentioned the upcoming trial either.

But the papers in Anschutz’s hometown of Denver are going wild with the story. Here’s what The Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News are saying. (Illustration credit: Wall Street Journal)
