Warren Buffett bought the Richmond Times-Dispatch and several other local newspapers last year. His company, Berkshire Hathaway Media, just bought the third-largest paper in North Carolina, The News & Record in Greensboro.
But in announcing the deal, the paper, well, misspelled the new boss’s name. Oops.
Yep, the front page story has the headline:
“Buffet media buys paper”
Unless someone can argue that “Buffet media” actually referred to a group of reporters lined up to chow down at the local Shoney’s, someone is headed to the doghouse.
