When the Washington Post Co. sold Newsweek magazine to Sidney Harman for $1 and assumption of debt, the Media Research Center issued a statement by president Brent Bozell being all snarky about it:
There's something entirely believable about the Newsweek sale. A left-winger pretending to be centrist sold it to another left-winger pretending to be centrist. Newsweek is a dying magazine because no one wants to read their left-wing propaganda masquerading as 'news.' The $1 price tag, then, is probably just about right.
U.S. News is now reporting that News World Communications is selling the Washington Times to founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon for, yes $1 and assumption of debt.
We'll be keeping an eagle eye out for Bozell's comment that the price is probably just about right, given that the Times is a dying newspaper because no one wants to read their right-wing propaganda masquerading as "news."
