Fans of the Conde Nast empire of media magnate S.I. Newhouse must be wondering about the latest gossip, a sale that could rival and exceed the Newhouse 1990s purchase of Wired magazine.
Gotta love Folio magazine for spotting the rumor of a Newhouse purchase of Rolling Stone magazine during a tossaway question by Charlie Rose the other night. The question pops up at around 32:00 into this snippet and watch the startled look on the face of Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter. There's no cutaway quick enough to catch the reaction of Jann Wenner, Rolling Stone's founder, sitting around Charlie's TV table.
Around Manhattan, Charlie Rose is friendly with many media characters in the Newhouse empire. Do I think that Charlie may have heard that rumor from someone in the know? You bet.
