CROSS another wealthy potential bidder for Philadelphia Media Network off the list.
The Associated Press reported yesterday that local philanthropist Raymond Perelman and his billionaire son, Ronald, complained in a letter to PMN's board on Wednesday that they were not being allowed to bid on the company, which owns the Daily News, Inquirer, Philly.com and SportsWeek.
"This whole thing is very weird," Raymond Perelman, 94, told the Daily News last night. "I'm not a quitter, but there's nothing else we can do. You can't make a guy do something that he doesn't want to."
PMN spokesman Mark Block said that the company had no comment on the developments.
