The recent sale of Newsweek magazine for $1 (along with much debt) to Sidney Harman certainly does not seem to bode well for the future of the weekly news magazine. The sale of the magazine, along with the painful selecting of an editor and the behind the scene drama between Harman and Barry Diller is the focus of New York Magazine‘s article Newsboy. Writer Steve Fishman does a great job dissecting the deal and leaves us wondering the long term prognosis for the magazine and whether it is to regain its former glory or be a vanity project of a 92 year old tycoon.

Thanks a ton for this helpful article. I’ve been lurking around the site for the past couple of weeks, and I really enjoy reading your posts Its nice to find a blog thats written by a human, rather than autoposting garbage. I maintain a blog that is a lot like yours, is there any way you would write a guest post on it? If you are interested, please send me an email!
