Exactly one month ago, FishbowlDC confirmed with sources that the Economist Group was set to purchase CQ. Both sides have been mum since we broke the story on June 19th. Today, CQ‘s Robert Merry sent a company-wide email calling for an all-hands staff meeting tomorrow at 10am. Could tomorrow be the big day that Merry discloses the pub’s fate?
FishbowlDC has the memo:
