The new conglomerate will be known as International Business Times/Newsweek, or IBT/N.

It's the Itty Bitty Titty Network.

I have nasty suspicion we're going to be seeing a lot of it around here in the future

Off topic, but I found it interesting; John Henry of Red Sox fame bought the Boston Globe over the weekend, paying $70 million. When the NY Times bought the Globe in '93, they paid $1.1 billion.

Newspaper Industry, everybody!

I'd pay to see covers like "Musrim Lage".

Wrong business publication subby.

Investors Business Times is actually a pretty decent website.

It's Investors Business Daily that is the pants on head retarded one.

It used to be good.
Then again, many companies used to be good before dying.


Speaking of which...Damn, I miss Borders

It's the Murdoch tabloid model. Can't say it's a failure with a lot of the world's population.

Since NYT kept the pension obligations, it actually sold for negative $40 million.

I've been spending more time in the sauna at the gym, and I've determined that expendable reading materials are nifty for environments which will kill electronics. Newspapers and weekly magazines are nifty for that.

Hey, spend 15 mintues in 180F temps twice after a workout and 100F outdoor temps seem like nothing. And it boils the alcohol out of your system.

Hey, remember when we had mostly unbiased and informative news available?  There's no telling how much is censored now.

I know IBT as the sight whose links I won't click because they always have that farking auto-play video in the side bar.
