Billionaire Warren Buffett is giving up on the newspaper business. He's selling all of Berkshire Hathaway's publications to Lee Enterprises for $140 million. The deal announced Wednesday covers 31 daily newspapers in 10 states as well as 49 paid weekly publications with digital sites and 32 other print products. Buffett is a lifelong fan of newspapers but he has said for several years that he expects most of them to continue on their declining trajectory, save for a handful of national papers such as The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

Warren Buffett's company reported an 11% decline in third-quarter profits because of a smaller increase in the paper value of its investments.

(Omaha, NE)  --  Some fans were in for a treat last week when Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett and actor Bill Murray got ice cream in Omaha.  Buffett and Murray were at Ted And Wally's on Thursday.  It's not clear why they were there.  Last year, Murray performed in the area and was on the sidelines for a Huskers football game.
