Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think it was one of his biographers who wrote that, in the 1880s or 1890s Morgan asked one of his aides how many and which newspapers he would have to control and, when told, proceeded to buy or suborn those papers. It was pursuant to that goal that he made Sulzberger publisher of the NYT. (Wish all my memories came with links to verify them!)
