The Hearst Corp.'s sale of the San Francisco Examiner has not persuaded political consultant Clint Reilly to drop his antitrust suit against Hearst's purchase of the San Francisco Chronicle, Reilly's lawyer said. Reilly intends to seek a restraining order against the sale of the morning Chronicle on Monday unless he is persuaded that the Examiner's new owner has a fighting chance to restore newspaper competition to the city, attorney Joseph M. Alioto said.

Hearst Corp., blocked by a federal judge last week from completing its purchase of the San Francisco Chronicle, said Monday it would go to trial May 1 to fight an antitrust suit opposing the sale. U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker issued a temporary restraining order Friday against the $660-million sale and said he was concerned that it would lead to the collapse of Hearst's 120-year-old Examiner and the end of daily newspaper competition in San Francisco.

On a local public radio station, a San Francisco Chronicle political reporter now working for a makeshift strike paper, the Free Press, said Sen. Dianne Feinstein had hired an undocumented immigrant as her housekeeper in the early 1980s. The INS later said the story was based on incomplete information.

Hearst Corp. CEO Frank Bennack Jr. testified Friday that he had no knowledge of an offer to give Mayor Willie Brown favorable editorials in the San Francisco Examiner in exchange for his support of Hearst's purchase of the rival Chronicle.

The San Francisco Examiner publisher who was abruptly suspended by Hearst Corp. after admitting on the witness stand that he offered favorable editorial coverage to Mayor Willie Brown was only repeating what he told the Justice Department in December. Timothy White's deposition five months ago before government antitrust lawyers was virtually identical to his explosive testimony Monday in federal court. A transcript of the deposition said two Hearst lawyers attended the session.

There has always been a soft spot in my heart for San Francisco, although a doctor I'm seeing is trying to have the spot removed. One pressing issue up there in Sa Fra Land is the impending sale of its 112-year-old newspaper, the Examiner. I know what it feels like to see an old paper sold, believe me.

Just a few weeks ago, the San Francisco Examiner appeared doomed, a struggling newspaper languishing on the sales block.

California's last two-newspaper city is poised to become a one-newspaper city, and the result is a civic free-for-all rife with celebrity bashing, a federal investigation, a state investigation, two city investigations, seething self-interest and a welter of resentments. The storied San Francisco Chronicle was sold this summer to the Hearst Corp., owner of its bitter rival of 100 years, the equally storied San Francisco Examiner.
