Is Roger Ebert's conscience bothering him?<p>"Like everyone on the staff I was saddened to learn that our circulation figures were inflated under [former Sun-Times publisher David] Radler," writes Roger Ebert. Radler shut down the building's escalators to save money on electricity and maintenance, he says. "Who would have thought such a penny-pincher might possibly be pinching millions for his own pockets? ...We have been freed from the greed of our former masters. Freed to make the best paper we can. If the Sun-Times survived Murdoch, Page, Radler and Black, think what we can do without them."

Roger writes as though the Sun-Times now has Katharine Graham and Gene Roberts at the helm instead of John Cruickshank and Michael Cooke.
