Posted on 01/03/2014 9:04:30 PM PST by PROCON
(CNSNews.com) The New York Times Company says its not for sale, but a high-profile Chinese businessman and philanthropist eager to buy what he views as the worlds most influential newspaper plans to fly to New York City this week to push ahead with his bid.
Chen Guangbiao on Wednesday told the Global Times, a Chinese Communist Party-affiliated paper, that he has a meeting scheduled Friday with a city firm specializing in mergers and acquisitions, followed by dinner on Sunday with a middle-level leader from the Times.

The NYSlimes loves communists, might be a great merger.
They have a lot of fish to wrap in China.
I’m in. As long as they promise to print that fish wrap in Chinese.
I thought the ChiComs already owned them.
It would probably make the editorial slant a bit less leftist. After all, there is something like free markets in China. They know about entrepreneurialism in China. Not so much in NYC. Hong Kong, for example.
China does not have a free market. They have limits and barriers against foreign products. Only a handful of US films are allowed to be shown there annually. Their economy is really export based with the Chinese army and government owning 49% of a lot of their corporations.
Marriage made in heaven
I don’t know about you, but I’m all for NEW YOLK CHINAMAN TIMES!
The Peoples Republic of China, is the world’s largest Communist regime.
The Grey Lady morphs into the Lady in Red. Delicious!
I (and many here) wish only a handful of US films were allowed to be shown here annually.
No need to remind me. I visited there once back in 1981. I saw their commie state up close and personal. The Chinese are filthy (not personally); they were back then; and will probably the same 1000 years from now.
Being commie is bad enough but do they have to live in such filth? Well, cleanliness costs money and to tell you the truth their filth offends me more than their politics.
What does filth have to do with Communism? In fact, neither China nor Korea are Communist states any more. Maybe in the name only, but they definitily don’t follow the Marxist ideology of the past or of the present. (There is a great Youtube video by a North Korea researcher living in South Korea, who explains North Korea, its state, and tells that they are not Communist in any shape of form.) It is unfortunate and ignorant that on this forum ‘Communist’ is anything that the poster dislikes. Examples from above - the Pope is supposedly ‘pure Marxism’, according to a radio blabbermouth. Obama can be said to follow the Marxist ideology, as it exists now in the Western academia.
Not sure if I completely agree with that characterization, it could be you ended up in a dirty area.
On China’s behalf, I would say the country is very crowded, and very ancient. Thousands of years, of a huge number of people all packed together, look different than a relatively young country with a rich background.
What I am most concerned about is, that businesses in China don’t build or support America. All the businesses which go to China become minority players there.
Everything gets taken over, by China. All of it.
We need to bring back businesses, and compete from here.
I’m so against China buying American businesses. I say let their dollars rot until they are willing to use them to buy U.S. trade goods, not our businesses.
However, this is the slimes. I see no downside to this.
