Every newspaper is a business, Tim - no business, no profits, no news. 
And the attempts to grab rights come from the business side - which is, 
after all, a business, not a collective for the support of writers and 
artists. And yes, the business sides at publications are making more and 
more inroads into the operations of the news sides. But to suggest that 
there "isn't much integrity" in the efforts of those on the news side 
is, at best, just plain silly.
