Everyone else has had their say about The New York Times being sold, so we might as well get something from the Times’ publisher, Arthur Sulzberger. In a statement reported by the Times, Sulzberger was emphatic, declaring that the Grey Lady is not for sale:
Will our family seek to sell The Times? The answer to that is no. The Times is not for sale, and the trustees of the Ochs-Sulzberger Trust and the rest of the family are united in our commitment to work together with the company’s board, senior management and employees to lead The New York Times forward into our global and digital future.
Can’t get more direct than that, right? That should settle things! Right?
