    The Newhouse family sold the 182-year-old daily The Times-Picayune and its website,, to a scrappy New Orleans competitor, and the entire staff is being laid off. That has stirred worries across the other papers in the family’s Advance Publications empire. A total of 161 staff members are being laid off, according to a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act) notice filed with the Louisiana Workforce Commission, which listed 65 reporter and editor jobs in the bloodbath. John and Dathel Georges, the husband-and-wife team that owns the rival New Orleans Advocate, are buying The Times-Picayune from Newhouse’s Advance Local,...

    Donald Trump's supporters have hit out at Hollywood once again, this time over a video of some of the biggest celebrities defiantly singing before his inauguration. A new clip by W Magazine and Conde Nast Entertainment shows the likes of Emma Stone, Natalie Portman and Amy Adams reciting the disco classic I Will Survive. The star-studded cast is seen participating in a 'lyrical improv' reading of the Gloria Gaynor song in the video, released just days before Trump will be sworn in. It's already racked up more than a million views, but many of Trump's most fervent fans found the...

    For the second year in a row, the island of Palawan was recognized as Best Island in the World by leading US travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler in its Readers’ Choice Awards 2015. Philippine Department of Tourism (DOT) Assistant Secretary Arturo Boncato Jr., in a text message to the Philippines News Agency said that the department was delighted about the recognition given to Palawan by Conde Nast. “The DOT is continuously focused on developing destinations in the country together with all stakeholders: NGAs, LGUs, private sector, and all our much-valued markets; to exceed expectations in many fronts,” Boncato said. “…Accolades...

    There is nothing wrong — and much that is right — with building a national monument to memorialize the nearly 3,000 people killed in the 9/11 attacks a decade ago. The awful events of that day traumatized the country — and changed it. The dead deserve to be remembered. Far be it from me to suggest otherwise. What I do want to suggest, though, is that what’s being built in the name of 9/11 — a staggering $11 billion worth of government-sponsored construction on the 16 acres we now call ground zero — is an example of just about everything...

    After months of speculation, the carnage came to Condé Nast earlier this week. The company, one of the nation's three biggest magazine publishers, announced it would close four magazines, including Gourmet, one of the industry's most iconic publications. A NEWSWEEK analysis of industry data provides new evidence of the financial toll that drove that decision: based on estimates of publishing data, Condé Nast could see its ad revenue drop by $1 billion in 2009. Through August, ad dollars already have plunged by about $600 million from the similar eight-month period in 2008 when revenues also were depressed. Of Condé Nast's...

    Conde Nast CEO Charles Townsend said Monday he was shutting down four magazines, including the awarding winning Gourmet, parenthood title Cookie and two of the company’s bridal magazines, Modern Bride and Elegant Bride. It was the biggest one-day bloodbath in the publishing company’s 100-year history. Hundreds of people will be tossed out of work. The company said it would keep the Gourmet cookbooks and television programming but shut the monthly magazine. Bride’s, the last surviving bridal book, will move to monthly from six times a year. Industry sources had estimated that Conde Nast could lose $200 million this year.

    A three-month McKinsey & Company project advising the publisher how to reduce costs is drawing to a close, and several magazines have been told to cut about 25 percent from their budgets. The company’s editors and publishers have already been under pressure to reduce costs this year, as advertising has plunged, and Condé Nast has closed two magazines in 2009, Domino and Condé Nast Portfolio. But cost-cutting at Condé Nast is not quite like cost-cutting at other publishers. For example, on Oct. 13, the men’s magazine GQ will host a party in Washington to promote its list of powerful capital...

    Another sign that that the eco-movement is a victim of the economy: Condé Nast, the publisher of Vanity Fair has decided to kill its annual green issue, according to an article by Rachel Shields in the April 5 The Independent (UK). "Condé Nast, publisher of Vanity Fair, argues that the environment has become so integral to the news agenda that there is no longer a need for a dedicated issue," Shields wrote. "Vanity Fair remains committed to covering the environment, and we'll spread our coverage throughout the year, instead of relegating the bulk of it to a specific issue," a...

    It turns out, Jane, the magazine, could not survive without Jane, the person. Condé Nast Publications yesterday said it was closing the magazine aimed at 20-something women. The August issue that hits in late July will be its last, ending a 10-year run. The move comes nearly two years after launch editor Jane Pratt resigned under pressure from the magazine that bore her name. She was replaced by former Elle Girl editor Brandon Holley. As part of the shutdown of Jane, Holley and Publisher Carlos Lamadrid are leaving Condé Nast. The 60 staffers on the magazine were given until Wednesday...

    The “Cooper Counts” are heard in court. Two of the five felony counts in the perjury and obstruction of justice case against Lewis Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, are based entirely on a single phone conversation Libby had with Matthew Cooper, then a White House correspondent for Time magazine, on July 12, 2003. In federal court in Washington Wednesday, CIA leak prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald revealed his documentary evidence to support those charges — one count of perjury and one count of making false statements — and the evidence was this: had somethine and about...

    The November issue of French Vogue arrived late on newsstands in Paris Thursday, having supposed to have been there since Monday. But subscribers received their copies in the mail on time -- with a little something extra. As it regularly does, French Vogue publisher Condé Nast collaborated with a major advertiser to sponsor a beauty supplement; this time, the honor fell to French beauty giant L'Oreal, which splashed out on 52 pages, including covers. Aside from the multiplicity of L'Oreals ads -- featuring Claudia Schiffer, Laetitia Casta and Natalie Imbruglia (news), among others -- the supplement's pages came illustrated with...

  • Mainstream Media 'Pushing Homosexual Agenda,' Says Conservative

    ( - The decision by Bride's magazine to publish an article about homosexual marriage comes as no surprise to a leading cultural conservative group. "The mainstream media is pushing the homosexual agenda and wanting the American public to embrace it as just another lifestyle choice," said Genevieve Wood, vice president of the Washington, D.C.-based Family Research Council. The article called "Outward Bound," which appears in the September-October issue of Bride's magazine, was written by David Toussaint, a freelance journalist, and discusses homosexual marriage ceremonies. In the article, Toussaint writes: "While gay couples have always been around, it wasn't until recently...
