The National Enquirer sought Time magazine -- and may still get it

“The National Enquirer, US Weekly, Star and others provide Pecker with a strong, well-established business base for weekly publications. Time and other Time Inc. weeklies would not only provide massive efficiencies but also make American Media the predominant publisher of weekly titles in the nation.”

John Huey, the former editor in chief of Time Inc., told The Daily Beast: “It’s logical to assume that Meredith will dump Time and Fortune, which they never wanted. Perhaps the Kochs have already bought them, or arranged to sell them to suitable proprietors.”…

Of course, whether Meredith would want to be seen putting the weeklies, including Time, into the hands of Pecker, who is a blatant Trump propagandist, is another important question.
