Who would buy it? Seriously.
Maybe the same people who would invest in a slide-rule manufacturing company?

I wish I could buy it so I could personally fire every writer/editor. That would be fun.

Who will buy something that will be extinct in a year and lose money every day of its existence?

...parts would include 3,000 wacko liberals and a huge Starbucks coffee bill.

“Despite heroic efforts on the part of NEWSWEEK’s management and staff, we expect it to still lose money in 2010.”
