"There is no discussion inside this boardroom to say we've got to get into this or that. We look at every growth opportunity on its merits."

"In a perfect world we don't want to be overly dependent on any single asset or be so dependent on the cycle or where one asset is the bulk of this company."

"I'm a great believer in new technology and I think new technology is very scary for newspaper companies."
