You’d think that the news that Al Qaeda is starting a magazine would cause Newsweek to be a little nervous to know they have a new competitor in the market, but for now, their focus is to keep people who really know what sells magazines from buying them out:

WITH a 5 p.m. Thursday deadline approaching for the final round of bids, at least two people were preparing to make offers for Newsweek while two others were told by the magazine’s owners that their bids would not be considered.
[...]
With no shortage of interested parties, the issue for the Post Company has become whether it can find a new owner that the company’s chairman and chief executive, Donald E. Graham, believes will be a suitable steward for the magazine.

That is the main reason the Post Company decided not to entertain offers from Newsmax or Mr. Ritchie, according to these people. The conservative political ideology of Newsmax’s chief executive, Christopher Ruddy, is at odds with the editorial bent of Newsweek, which strives to be apolitical in its news coverage though is often criticized as left-leaning.

Excuse me, but hahahahahahaha!

Yeah, a conservative editorial slant might ruin Newsweek’s legendary objectivity.
