Trump looking to buy N.Y. Times?

Sulzberger family controls company's voting shares

(NEW YORK MAGAZINE) With Donald Trump, you can never tell where the TV show ends and reality begins. Is he serious about buying the New York Times?

In a brief interview this afternoon, Trump said he wouldn’t comment on his intentions or strategy, deferring to a spokesman who said that Trump’s posture toward the Times was in the “evaluation stage.” But Trump appears to have done a modicum of homework on the finances of the Times, recounting the paper’s unsuccessful business investments of the past decade.

“They buy the Boston Globe for a billion-two,” said Trump. “Jack Welch and a group offers them $600 million for it and they turned it down, and now they’ll give it away for nothing. For literally nothing.”
