    The current owners have nothing to do with the Newsweek of yesteryear, the eternal Pepsi to Time magazine's Coke.

    The revenue freefall prompted an August 2010 sale by owner The Washington Post Company to 92-year-old audio pioneer Sidney Harman—reportedly for a purchase price of $1.00 and an assumption of the magazine's liabilities.[2][3] Editor Jon Meacham departed from the magazine upon completion of the sale.[3]

    In November 2010 Newsweek merged with the news and opinion website The Daily Beast after extensive negotiations between the proprietors of the respective publications. Tina Brown, The Daily Beast's editor-in-chief was expected to serve as the editor of both publications. Newsweek is jointly owned by the estate of the late Harman and the diversified American Internet company IAC.[4][5]

    Merged with the The Daily Beast? What a come-down.

    The Dutch kids' chorus Kinderen voor Kinderen wishes all the world's children freedom from hunger, ignorance, and war.
