After purchasing The Chattanooga Bystander yesterday for $19 million dollars, the daily newspaper Chattanooga Times Free Press announced that it was selling the newly acquired online news website on Craigslist “for $199 or best offer.”
The Craigslist advertisement also stated that the Times Free Press was open to possibly trading it for a used lawnmower in good working condition or a set of grow lights.
“We made a huge mistake,” said TFP managing editor Jordan Krampton. “The Chattanooga Bystander is a massive liability, and it’s just a matter of time before some local celebrity or rich politician sues these assholes.”
“If there are no takers, then we’ll probably just give it away on Freecycle,” said Krampton.
