And oh yeah, the New York Times is no longer looking to sell the Boston Globe. Apparently, the Globe has increased its revenue streams sufficiently enough to allow the Times to forgo the plethora of unattractive offers (okay, there were two).
According to an article on the Times’ Web site, the New York Times Company, which is still looking to sell the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, sent an e-mail to Globe employees around 5 p.m., eliciting across-the-board relief.
The Times is, however, still looking to sell their share of the Boston Red Sox. Getting swept by the Angels in the first round of the playoffs was just too embarrassing.
