A bidding battle for the Chicago Sun-Times is likely to wrap up this month, with the Justice Department throwing its weight behind the one contender that isn't the paper's archrival.
Even though former Chicago Ald. Edwin Eisendrath and a group of unions have offered to pay just $1 for the paper, antitrust regulators at Justice seem prepared to torpedo the only other offer, from Chicago Tribune owner Tronc.
If the Eisendrath group can make good on a pledge to raise at least $11 million to sustain the money-losing Sun-Times operation, it will have the upper hand with Justice, sources say.
