After Newsweek sold for a dollar (Not for an issue, mind you) and the Washington Post sold for some tiny fraction of its prior worth, I have started to default to "Wait and see" on these announcement.

Interesting news concerning the NYT and China recently.  All of the NYT reporters had delays put on their visa renewals and were getting very close to getting forced to leave the country.  Then a week ago or so, they quietly got renewed and the NYT has published a bunch of pollution and corruption articles the past few days.  If a Chinese billionaire bought the paper I'm sure the government would put an end to those types or pieces through pressure on the owner.

The best part is, he doesn't even have the money.

Someone wants to buy the Times for a billion?!?

Holy crap, take the money and run!

Imagine if you will that I could buy the New York Times tomorrow.

Do you really think it would hold nearly the same value a year from now as it does today?

Maybe, if I let the same people run its operations from day to day, but what if I got drunk and started posting my own editorials on the front page?

I mean, I've been on Fark for a little while and I've made some pretty stupid posts - usually when I was very drunk, which is most of the time, but I think I've also made some insightful posts (in my own mind at least).

So far no one - not one of you - has asked to subscribe to my newsletter.

My mother works for the Times. I should call her and get her opinion on this.
