News Corp. may target LA Times, Chicago Tribune, NYT says

News Corporation (NWSA) is looking to make acquisitions again and has been widely rumored to be close to taking a 49% stake in the Yes Network, though a New York Times report adds that Rupert Murdoch may also look at potential targets including The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune and more education companies as the split off of the conglomerate's publishing assets may allow more of those types of deals.
