Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway is buying the owner of Omaha's daily newspaper, the World-Herald. In a news release, Buffett is quoted as saying the World-Herald "delivers solid profits and is one of the best-run newspapers in America." The release also notes that Buffett sees the purchase as "consistent" with a past owner's "vision for local ownership." The purchase is somewhat surprising, as Buffett has often conceded that while he loves newspapers, the industry doesn't have a very bright future.
