The Freep reports they're going to start providing content to WWJ-TV in the morning now.

Nope. There was a break-up a while ago. I think it was a small brief on WDIV or Freep's Web site. I can't remember. The Ruth Spencer and Chuck Gaidica items haven't been in the print edition of the Free Press for a couple of weeks, I think.

When WDIV started taunting the Detroit newspapers in ads, saying that it (WDIV) still delivered to your home 7 days a week...its newspaper partner understandably said, "later to you."

When WDIV didn't fire or suspend Rob Parker for the MSU Kirk Cousins story that was made up, I said "goodbye to you". I sent them an e-mail that if they didn't suspend or fire him, I would not be viewing any of their local content.

Yeah and how much actual news does WDIV come up with that doesn't originate in the Free Press or News? Not a lot. So their attitude was pretty arrogant.
