    Well, here's to being optimistic that some good can come from this. Maybe this will be his next STAR :beguiled:

    He's all about making money.

    Most mgt that says there will be no change are essentially stating that for "this instant" and one can expect change. I've seen it happen all the time. There are very few companies that actually mean what they say during a takeover.

    you can't erode something that's already died, decomposed, and been eaten by grubs.

    National Geographic has their TV Channel too - NatGeo
    That article talks about how they've had some misses in programming.
    so while people continue to not buy printed magazines, they move to online articles and TV.
    The TV I would think would make most revenue as it's advertising that pays the bills.

    I don't know what the subscription on nationalgeographic.com gives from the free stuff, but that revenue is based on advertizer clicks.

    Selling paper anything has been a dwindling proposition for years now.

    They are still one of the highest circulated magazines, so who knows.

    So no more photos for NatGeo? Or will he be using the Craigslist professionals from now on?

    Whether he gets them from CL or the local tavern, who cares? He will be saving the magazine money.

    I subscribed many years ago, but lately have been seeing it mainly in waiting rooms. It is not seen in as many waiting rooms these days.

    I don't like it when graphs lie a bit for initial visual impact
