The Washington Post Co. announced today that it has retained Allen & Company to explore the possible sale of NEWSWEEK magazine.

they never did get around to changing the name to “Barack Illustrated Weekly”, eh?
I’ve got a place it would fit, but I can’t say, ‘cause it would get me banned.
It was later proved to be only an allegation and Newsweak was forced to print a retraction.
Also, remember the sexist photo of Sarah Palin published on a Newsweak cover? The bias was so lame and obvious that even liberals were embarrassed.
Before leftists took over this rag, it ranked only behind Time magazine as an important news journal. However, leftists are like locusts when they take something over.....they leave only ravaged ruination and shreds of destruction in all they touch before they are forced to leave or sell out what they have despoiled.
Good riddance to bad rubbish. Now it appears that the likes of Michael Isikoff and Eleanor Clift may have to look for new print outlets on which to impose their liberal literary fungus.
poor old Eleanor. She’s too old to do tricks and transaction from presstitute to prostitute.
She’s too old for sidewalk sex like that with Bubba at the ‘68 convention.
Tough, I mean tough nookies.
How about News Corp buy it. Johnathon Alter has to report into Rupert Murdoch and Rupert says, You’re fired!!! Would love it...
It will take a decade, maybe more, to get rid of the outdated issues littering the waiting rooms of the country.
The next to fall will be People, US and assorted papparrazi pubs about retarded celebrities.
I'm sure going to miss garbage like this!
Can’t imagine3 any buyers unless their intent is to cease paper publication and go strictly on line like US News & World Report. Time wont be far behind.
That might be wishful thinking.
So far, the highest bid has come from Charmin, looking for a new distribution system.
Ping. Sorry to be late on the ping list, but I was busy this morning reporting on a red hot school board meeting last night.
Chief Moose had might as well be the chief editor for the LSM losers, with their constant drumbeat of “whitey did it.”
The Der Sturmer had more subtly than the clown show that calls itself “mainstream.”
I’ll throw ten bucks into the bidding right now.
Somebody put an article on MarketWatch.com suggesting “it” be merged with Slate.com. I guess then you could call it the slippery slate!!!
I hear the National Enquirer is interested....
Werent these the idiots that said they actually wanted, and were happy about less market share a few months ago? Also, didnt they say they were intentionally pandering to a more sophisticated market?
Arrange for an interview. Toy with them. Then let them know they've been punked by a Freeper, while laughing maniacally.
Maybe a merger with the Atlantic ?
NEWSWEEK = “We are all Socialists now!”
That publication deserves to die.
