25-Year-Old Buys the New York Observer

This article was written by in Uncategorized. 2 comments.

When I was 25, I was working for a small non-profit, working myself into the ground. It was a love/hate relationship. I wasn’t buying newspapers. Well, I bought some in the store occasionally, but not the entire operation for nearly $10 million.

Jared Kushner, the 25-year-old son of a wealthy New Jersey developer who was sentenced to prison last year, has bought The New York Observer…

Kushner’s father was involved in scandals surrounding former New Jersey Governer James McGreevey.

The Obserserver’s circulation is only 50,000, so maybe there’s room for growth. From the article, it doesn’t really sound like the younger Kushner has the experience to make any radical changes, but who knows.
