via Salon:

The new New Republic: Martin Peretz is owner of the New Republic no more -- Canadian media giant CanWest Global Communications announced Tuesday that it purchased Peretz's remaining 25 percent share in the magazine to become its new full owner. Editor-in-chief Peretz, who has been with the magazine for three decades, told the New York Observer, "It feels like a burden has been lifted from me." The magazine also recently announced it's undergoing a redesign, and it will be going from a weekly to a biweekly starting March 19. (New York Observer)
