Block, the newspaper company spokesman, confirmed that he had removed from the newspapers' Philly.com website on Tuesday a reporter's blog post about Blatstein's interest because he considered it misleading but said it wasn't his intent to question the accuracy of the reporting.

"I was concerned the statement from the Blatstein group press release could be construed as more than it was â¿¿ by creating the impression they were in negotiations for the purchase of Philadelphia Media Network," Block said in a statement.

He declined to comment on the second union grievance, that management removed a paragraph from an Inquirer story on the company's finances and put the potential market value at less than $40 million.

The union vowed to continue to press the issue with management and investigate other allegations of "mysteriously removed" work.
