So they are soon taking the gaslighting to the next level by controlling and skewing what's reported in Time, S.I., Entertainment Weekly, Fortune, People, Southern Living, and more?  So they're all basically the NY Post?

This is fin...............

Well that's certainly one way to get Trump as man of the year for 2018

Ummm this is really not a big departure from Time's history. Learn a little more about Henry Luce. Read "The Powers That Be" by David Halberstam for example.

Time has been a joke for decades now, so I guess they can be retroactively blamed.

Controlling the media is a primary tool of despots.

...I'm sorry, and I may be inviting a world of shiat down upon my head, but the lesson I've gotten from this (and other stories) is that the political and moral principles of Time Inc's leadership were eternal and unbreakable until somebody with enough money showed up.

Would anyone be surprised if the Koch brothers hung out in the same clubs, moved in the same circles as Henry Luce used to?  I'm not expecting it makes much difference at Time at the DNA level

I just hope my face doesn't get eaten until I'm in my 60s. I'll be encouraging my kids to take a semester+ overseas and hope they each knock up some Irish girl and marry her.

FTA: "Koch Industries has vowed to remain a passive investor."

The Koch brothers are known for their passive behavior.
Much like cancer.

They have already been taking over Universities. They will endow a chair, but only if they get approval over hiring.

Seriously, this will have a huge impact on what I would read in a doctor's office waiting room if my phone died.

So what you're saying is that they will take what Sinclair Media has done with local TV and bring it to dental office coffee tables? You may be right; this may be the end.
