Sacramento Bee sales: clueless or duped?

When I pass the Bee newsstand, what I can see of their news determines whether I buy.

See today's Bee hopefully awaiting purchasers. See almost half its above-the-fold real estate obscured by advertising. Expect sales to people like me to drop 40%.

Could it be related to this mid-December observation on Sierra Voices?
...overheard a clerk in a local grocery store talking to a customer who wondered why there was no Sacramento Bee on the newsstand:

"It wasn’t delivered today. Since The Union took over delivery of the Bee, it’s been a problem..."
