  • The "Crazy", "Deadender" Tea Party: The BusinessWeek Cover Does It Again (attacks Ted Cruz)

    While Bloomberg's BusinessWeek division is no stranger to provocative covers (here, here and here), it will be interesting to see what reactions among a growing segment of the US population, those that don't believe that unsustainable, reserve currency-threatening spending like a drunken sailor is the equivalent of "wealth creation", its latest cover ( to the following story) will provoke: namely, the "crazy", "deadender" tea party.

    New York Post ^ | March 11, 2010 | Keith J. Kelley
    The ax-man rings twice! The second round of cuts got underway at Bloomberg BusinessWeek this morning, with about 30 people being trimmed from the business news weekly’s payroll. Roughly 20 will be given their walking papers — with the remainder being reassigned to the Bloomberg News operation, sources said. Departments hit hard by the swinging ax include editorial, photo and art. A BusinessWeek spokesman said: "As we prepare for the launch of Bloomberg BusinessWeek on April 23, we are more deeply integrating our editorial team with Bloomberg’s, one of the world’s largest news organizations. As a result, there are some...

    Barack Obama swept into the Oval Office as a human green screen. Voters projected their own hopes and dreams onto him. He had glamour, observers gushed. But glamour used to mean an actual magic spell, as my former boss Virginia Postrel wrote during the 2008 campaign. She noted fans’ mystical bond with the mysterious candidate: Obama is unusual, however. He attracts supporters who not only disagree with his stated positions but assume he does too.

    Bloomberg is taking another step from the trading floor into the corner office. The company said Tuesday that it was the winning bidder for BusinessWeek, the troubled 80-year-old title that McGraw-Hill had put on sale this summer. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but the price was said to be near $5 million, plus assumption of liabilities, which were $31.9 million as of April. The magazine will continue to be a weekly print publication, rechristened Bloomberg BusinessWeek. Decisions have not been made about BusinessWeek’s staff of more than 400 people; Bloomberg will select which of those employees it wants...

    What’s one of the biggest names in magazine publishing worth? These days, maybe $5 million, plus debt. That’s the high end of the range Bloomberg will be paying for BusinessWeek, reports BusinessWeek, which has done an excellent job of covering its sale. Can’t call this one a surprise, as Bloomberg has reportedly been the lead bidder for some time now. BusinessWeek employees spent most of the day waiting for an announcement to that effect, and finally heard one, via Bloomberg’s wire service, shortly after 5 pm EDT. Shortly after, BusinessWeek Editor Stephen J. Adler gathered his troops for an informal...

    AN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Bloomberg LP is buying BusinessWeek magazine in a deal that brings together a financial news service specializing in rapid-fire updates with a print publication struggling to adapt to the Internet's information whirlwind. Terms of the sale announced Tuesday were not disclosed. Citing unnamed people privy to the negotiations, BusinessWeek pegged the acquisition price at $2 million to $5 million in cash. Bloomberg also would be responsible for paying other costs, such as severance pay to any of the roughly 400 BusinessWeek employees who might be laid off, the magazine's Web site reported.snip
  • Business Week sale may fetch only $1

    McGraw-Hill could reap just $1 from a sale of Business Week, according to people familiar with the 80-year-old financial magazine’s losses. The publisher has appointed Evercore, the boutique investment bank, to sell the business after concluding it was non-core, two people familiar with the decision said. McGraw-Hill, which owns the Standard & Poor’s rating agency and a large educational publisher, would only say it was “exploring strategic options” for Business Week. Evercore did not return calls. Auctioning a predominantly print business exposed to financial advertisers during a media recession will be challenging.

    Looking for new and innovative ways to spread the doom-and-gloom news associated with the economic downturn, BusinessWeek magazine launched a recession blog on its Web site back in May to give a personalized glimpse into "recession" hardships. "This blog is one of the places we'll tell these stories," BusinessWeek.com reporter Tim Catts wrote on the blog's first post on May 2. "Here, we'll jump into the conversation about where the economy is and where it's going. Yes, sometimes we'll look at the latest data. Sometimes we'll share observations from the road.

    If there were any doubt the media is trying to milk bad economic news for all that it's worth, look no further than BusinessWeek magazine. BusinessWeek kicked off its "Recession in America" blog on May 2. It is dedicated solely to reporting on the "recession [that] is here (or will be soon)," as the headline of a May 19 post stated (h/t BMI advisor Chris Roush of Talkingbiznews.com). "As the U.S. economy slows, the story is often told through broad statistics," the "about" section of the blog stated. "In this blog, BusinessWeek reporter Tim Catts travels the country to uncover...

A spokeswoman would not discuss specific employees or their last day at work. Here is the memo (the layoffs are buried after the jump) from editor in chief Stephen Adler: Colleagues: For the past three years, we’ve been moving progressively toward integrating our print and digital operations – by increasing reporters’ contributions to Businessweek.com, combining our overseas bureaus and copy-desk teams, and seating together everyone within a given coverage area.

    U.S. stocks are at record levels. Earnings season is under way, with many expecting a modest rise in corporate profits. Unemployment is very low. So far problems with housing haven't infected the rest of the economy, which seems poised to bounce back from slow growth in the first quarter. So what is there to worry about? Plenty. No matter how wonderful things look, the good times won't last forever. Even as most market observers remain bullish, we asked them what could derail this bull market. Stocks could keep setting records for months or even years, but it pays for investors...

    BusinessWeek’s Spin on Socialism: ‘Business has never been better’ Posted by Julia A. Seymour on June 19, 2007 - 18:26. Socialist Dictator Hugo Chavez has seized private businesses in Venezuela and many Venezuelans are fleeing the country, yet BusinessWeek magazine found a silver lining: “In some respects, business has never been better,” claimed Geri Smith in the June 25 issue. Smith quoted Venezuelan American Chamber of Commerce President Edmond J. Saade who said: “It’s a bit like the … French Revolution. Power to the people, death to nobility.” Smith’s claim that business has never been better even ignored the Venezuelan...

But however much Californians might hate traffic-clogged Route 101, the main drag though the Valley, it has nothing on Hosur Road. This potholed, four-lane stretch of gritty pavement -- the primary access to Electronics City -- is pure chaos. Cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, taxis, rickshaws, cows, donkeys, and dogs jostle for every inch of the roadway as horns blare and brakes squeal. Drivers run red lights and jam their vehicles into any available space, paying no mind...

    I have read BusinessWeek regularly for 30 years. I began reading it on the advice of the late Michael Harrington, the socialist agitator and author of The Other America. Mike used to pepper his speeches calling for capitalist reform with supporting evidence from this eminently capitalist journal, which he regarded as the best of the newsmagazines. BusinessWeek became my window into what Marx called "the relations of production." In the 1980s, it was the place to follow the debate over deindustrialization and the Japanese challenge; in the 1990s, it was the best source on globalization and the new cyber-economy. And...

    September 29, 2006 -- BUSINESS WEEK'S new Edit or-in-Chief Steve Adler is slashing and burning. In its second round of cutbacks in less than a year, the McGraw-Hill flagship lowered the boom on 12 editorial staffers and bid adieu to two other veterans. Mark Morrison, a former managing editor who had spent 32 years at the weekly, is retiring. Come January, he is going back to Austin, Tex., to teach journalism at his alma mater. Morrison was at one point considered a possible successor to Steve Shepherd as editor-in-chief, but when the nod instead went to Wall Street Journal veteran...

    Investors Fleeing GOP Investors at all income levels are increasingly turning away from the Republican Party, endangering the GOP's hold on power. According to pollsters, 35 percent of voters belong to the "investor class," which includes not only wealthy individuals but also union members, mutual fund holders and a growing number of minority-group Americans. They comprise a group that helped put Republicans in power "but now seems restless," Business Week reports. President Bush got the votes of 61 percent of investors in 2004, but now only 43 percent give him a favorable job approval rating, according to a recent Zogby...

    The activity du jour for Business Week’s Capitol Hill correspondent Eamon Javers seems to be systematically “outing” conservative columnists as corporate shills. On January 13, BusinessWeek’s web edition ran an article by Javers deceptively titled, “A Columnist Backed By Monsanto.” The article begins, “Michael Fumento's failure to disclose payments to him in 1999 from the agribusiness giant has now caused Scripps Howard to sever its ties to him.” What Javers is talking about is that the Hudson Institute, the conservative organization that employs Fumento as a senior fellow, received a book grant of $60,000 from Monsanto in 1999. The “payment”...

    Today's example of MSM bias: this Business Week article by Leo Hindery, Jr., titled "Tragedy and Telecom." The article is subtitled, "How the Bush Administration's antiregulation stance contributed to the post-Katrina communications collapse -- and what should be done now." Mr. Hindery's indictment of the Bush administration is the latest effort to blame the President for just about everything associated with Hurricane Katrina. Its reasoning is so fragmentary, however, that Hindery never does explain why "the Bush administration's antiregulation stance" had anything to do with the hurricane or its aftermath. That doesn't stop Hindery from dropping the usual snide comments....

    Demography, as the saying goes, may be destiny. But an archaic system of representation that includes a winner-take-all selection of electors and eschews proportionate representation at the local level is denying a voice to political minorities. Are you perchance one of the 2.4 million hardy Democrats living in Texas? You might as well hang up your political spurs. Since the Reagan era, Texas has become solidly Republican. Or perhaps you're a GOPer in New York or California, home to a combined 8.5 million members of the Grand Old Party. Tough luck, pal. Many of the distortions can be traced to...
