September 2008: “McClatchy only grounded its corporate jet (a 2005 Dassault Falcon 2000EX jet, tail number N57MN) in the last month. As McClatchy was making its employees bleed to pay off crushing debt incurred by corporate decisions, McClatchy executives were jet-setting in luxury. From April 16 to Aug. 5, the jet was flown 30 times, according to flightaware.com. Many of the destinations were only a one- or two-hour drive away.” — from a Newspaper Guild memo I posted on Sept. 17, 2008.

September 2013: McClatchy is ending its health-care plan for retirees at the end of 2014, reports Bloomberg.com.
