You Get What You Pay For – Open Thread

Last August, the Washington Post sold Newsweak Newsweek magazine for a buck to a 91-year old stereo equipment magnate Sidney Harman, who also assumed the periodical’s debt. Three months later the Daily Beast merged with Newsweek. The cheap purchase price from the Newsweek buy has allowed the Daily Beast to entice Andrew “Excitable Andy” Sullivan, the “conservative” pot-smoker and “expert to the masses” on all things gynecological (which is ironic considering Sullivan’s sexual preferences), especially with regards to Sarah Palin and her progeny, to move to the Daily Beast from The Atlantic. The IQ of the writers at Sullivan’s former employer has increased a million percent.

Have at it.
