Lockyer on the media merger


By Tim Redmond

I run into Bill Lockyer, the former state Attorney General (now treasurer) waiting his chance to get on stage. I explain to him that his successor, Jerry Brown, has formally closed any investigation in to the merger that gave Dean Singleton control over almost every daily newspaper in the Bay Area. "Any thoughts on that?" I ask.

His response:

"No. He's elected, and I've moved on."

Good to know your heart was in it, Bill.
