The New TNR

CREDIT:

The New Republic is shifting to a biweekly format, though they say they’ll be publishing a longer book. What’s more, Canadian media conglomerate Canwest is going to own 75 percent of the magazine. Editor in Chief Martin Peretz will continue to own a 25 percent stake and will continue to serve as editor in chief. The Asper family, which controls CanWest, has basically Peretz-esque ideological views so I wouldn’t expect any dramatic changes.
