    Obviously MG is making strides to improve thier company by dumping the newspapers and they really should have a decent or even above average second half to 2012 with the Olympics, the election, and Christmas. Being all broadcast, and as the Olympics are a NBC item, I see brighter things for this company in 2012. I saw share price drop somewhat after this irrelevant announcement. It might be a good idea to judge a company on what the future can hold, instead of what the past has done. Just saying.......

    With most of the newspaper weight off of MG after June 25, I won't be surprised at a quick turnaround in the second half of the year when the Olympic/Election/Chris... revenue to thier broadcast stations isn't being offset by print losses any longer. Investors might see decent to good share price increase if they ignore the irrelevant downgrading.
