None challenge the gist of the Times‘s story — that BusinessWeek is for sale for cheap because its online advertising revenues have failed to replace its quickly shrinking offline ad revenues.
But they do dispute ancillary details!
So, for the record, one staffer tells us that despite the Times report:
- There were no layoffs in January.
- BusinessWeek launched in 1929, not 1926.
- Half of BusinessWeek’s Web traffic does not come from slide shows.
