Power in a Union – Fight LEE Corporate Greed #KeepMissoulaIndy
The threats of dismissal that the Missoula Independent employees are receiving mean that the Lee Corporation bought the Missoula Independent just to destroy it. They bought their competition to get rid of it. The Lee Corporation owns newspapers all over Montana and has a de facto monopoly on daily news coverage for most of the state. They purchased the Missoula Independent claiming they were interested in it as a news delivery tool to add to their monopolistic toolkit. This was obviously a lie. Lee Corporation is trying to shut down the Missoula Independent and merge it with the Missoulian.
