Publisher of The New York Times Says the Paper is Not for Sale

The Washington Post and The Boston Globe were both sold this week


The New York Times is not for sale, its controlling family and publisher have said, the newspaper reported after a week in which both The Boston Globe and The Washington Post were purchased by new owners.

"Will our family seek to sell The Times? The answer to that is no," the publisher, Arthur Sulzberger Jr., who is also chairman of the New York Times Co., said in a statement reported on the newspaper's website.
