There appears to be yet another power struggle over control of America's most hilariously named newspaper chain, tronc (with a lowercase t), formerly known as Tribune Publishing, which includes a little daily newspaper called the Los Angeles Times. This contest pits two rich men against each other: the daring and wily tech entrepreneur and would-be savior of journalism Michael Ferro, and the enigmatic South African-born surgeon and second richest Angeleno Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong.
