Submission + - New York Times Sells Boston Globe at 93% Loss (breitbart.com)

schwit1 writes: After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That's a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse — as does the fact the Times retains the Globe's pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million.

The Sox have come back, maybe he can do the same for the Globe.
