1. Their first issues cover will be a reprint of tRumps fake cover.

That will legitimize the cover as no longer being fake.

6. Time has had a problem with subscriptions.

Now they will contend with a tsunami of cancellations.

9. $2.8 BILLION all CASH sale.

Cash. they have billions in cash sitting around. Offshore, most likely. While there are many thousands of homeless people in post-hurricane Houston/East Texas, and Fla. And esp. Puerto Rico.

13. How do you know they don't? The big 6 are

giant corporations, of course, with the self-serving wiring of all giant corporations.

But Jeff Bezos, to name one, isn't a knuckle-dragger. Even if he considers himself libertarian, most of his donations have been to Democrats and the WaPo's been doing okay under him--so far, less hostile to Democrats than the NY Times has become.

I have a question for everyone it's appropriate for: Why do you tune in to those conservative corporate offerings on the boob tube and soak up their right-wing lies and fake equalizations about US, about our candidates and party?

GE owns NBC. Time-Warner owns CNN.

Those who do shouldn't fool themselves for a moment that the big-money psych ops aren't affecting them. We see their message every day in hundreds of posts here.

15. Well, if they do...

maybe they should start buying radio stations, although there probably is no market for non right winger content.

Tie is one magazine I would've thought a mega rich Dem would buy.

17. Time's failing. It would make sense if its value was as a propaganda

vehicle. That would explain why right-wing extremists wanted it and liberal billionaires don't.

Again, blasting the false equalization pushed at us from all sides, there are huge differences between liberals and hard-core conservatives.

16. I've had a Time subscription since high school - which was a long time ago.

I think I'll wait and see what happens but I'm not optimistic. I'll cancel my subscription at the first whiff a the Koch sibs changing the magazine.

Well at least it's nice to know they will lose billions on it.

Washington Times is now 2 billion in the hole.
