Newsweek’s New Owner Accused of ‘Illegally Muzzling’ Employees (Adweek)
IBT Media’s purchase of Newsweek seems to be off to an inauspicious start.

The guild, which represents editorial employees at Newsweek and its former online counterpart The Daily Beast, said it filed an unfair labor practice charge Sept. 18.

So, to make a long story short: A few months later — on the same day in August — my daughter started at her new school 2,500 miles away, and I started my new role at LinkedIn focused on helping future generations find their paths.
