The American Prospect Will Fold Unless it Comes up With $500,000

The American Prospect, the liberal magazine that publishes 10 times a year, is in dire straits. The Huffington Post reports that, unless the title comes up with about $500,000, the July/August issue, which closes in May, will be its last.

Kit Rachlis, the American Prospect’s Editor-in-Chief, is currently pulling out all the stops to make sure that doesn’t happen. She told HuffPo that staffers are “making an all-points effort to fill that gap with individual donors, institutional donors, as well as readers and subscribers.”

If you think the American Prospect hasn’t made much of an impact, thus it won’t be missed, here are just a few journalists who got their start there: Ezra KleinSuzy Khimm, Joshua GreenNick Confessore, Garance Franke-Ruta, Jonathan Chait and Ann Friedman.

What Surprised Michael Wolff Most About Rupert Murdoch May Also Surprise You!

100_3532.jpgThe party for Michael Wolff‘s much ballyhooed official Rupert Murdoch biography The Man Who Owns the News was held last night at the stunning penthouse of Milk Studios on the West Side and, not surprisingly, attracted a whole slew of media big wigs (every style of horn-rimmed glasses appeared to be present — said one party-goer on knowing the room was packed with famous names but not recognizing the faces: “I wish there was an iPhone app for that.”). Sadly Rupe himself was noticeably absent. Turns out the last-minute party date switcheroo from Monday night to Tuesday was just…a mistake, and not actually a scheduling conflict with Wendi Murdoch’s 40th birthday party.

100_3535.jpgWe eventually caught up with Wolff — the man knows how to work a room! — and asked him what, in the course of writing the book, had most surprised him about Rupert Murdoch?

That he takes an enema before a long-haul flight.

There you have it! To file in your TMI folder. We also managed to chat with Christie Hefner for a few minutes (full disclosure: we have written for Playboy) about her decision to step down as CEO from Playboy Enterprises.(Above: Michael Wolff; Right: Dan Abrams and David Zinczenko)
