One last hurrah!

As we reported earlier this month, Us Weekly was bought by American Media, Inc., whose Chairman and CEO David Packer is a big Donald Trump supporter! AMI also owns The National Enquirer which has been running SEVERAL pro-Trump stories in the past few months.

On Thursday, the celebrity news publication reportedly laid off 40 employees including Editor-in-Chief Michael Steele.

Before the bloodbath occurred, the cover of its latest issue — dated April 3, 2017 — was released and its hard not to see an anti-Donnie message!

The cover story — about Melania Trump and her husband having marital problems — could possibly be a huge "fuck you" to AMI, Packer, and his conservative beliefs. Perhaps staffers knew the end was near and wanted to go out in a blaze of glory!

Either way, the news organization will never be the same…

IT'S OVER! Us Weekly Bought By Major Trump Supporter — Who Also Owns The National Enquirer!

no title

Don't be surprised if you start to see some much more flattering headlines about Donald Trump and his family on the cover of Us Weekly in the near future.

The celeb news mag has been bought up by American Media Inc., whose Chairman and CEO David Packer is a big Donald Trump supporter!

You may have noticed one of his other magazines, The National Enquirer, had a hand in destroying Trump's Republican rival Ted Cruz with "reporting" on his extramarital affairs and father's roles in the JFK assassination. Seriously.

In a statement, Packer said:

"We are excited to bring one of the most distinctive and powerful media brands to AMI and are looking forward to continuing its great editorial standards its loyal and growing audience expects."

If you are a loyal Us reader, we wouldn't exactly count on those standards continuing. The entire 45-person staff apparently have to re-interview for their own jobs right away. Eesh.

AMI also owns the Enquirer, Radar Online, Star, OK! Magazine, and Soap Opera Digest. This will be their largest celebrity news magazine to date.

Countdown to a "Just Like Us" feature about golden toilets…

R.I.P. Us Weekly.

We reported last week that the reality family was negotiating a contract with American Media Inc. to launch their own magazine, and now, three "editorial mock-ups" for a K3mag.com have surfaced, suggesting that the publication is coming much sooner than initially thought - except it's owned by Canadian company Comminiqis!

Ch-ch-check 'em out (above)!

Inneresting!

However, according to Communiqis’ founder Brian Rushton Phillips, no deal is in place, meaning American Media way secure a contract still!

OK! Magazine Sold To National Enquirer Parent Company

Filed under: Media MinuteBusiness Blitz

OK! Enquirer Covers

Earlier we reported OK! Magazine was anything but okay. However, things are looking a little more optimistic!

Since the magazine launched on American soil, the company lost $218.3 million AND was losing $500,000 a week in the most recent fiscal year.

Time Warner had interest in buying the magazine, but faded presumably after looking at how much money OK! was losing every week.

Fortunately for the gossip magazine, American Media Inc. — home to the National Enquirer and Star — has agreed to make the purchase and plans to continue publishing it!

Sounds like a lot of nervous employees will get to keep their jobs, which is always a good thing, but now it's a matter of making some money!

Do U think the OK! can turn a profit under new management?

Another one bites the dust!

American Media Inc., which is the parent company of The National Enquirer and Star magazines, as well being in charge of all non-editorial functions involving Playboy magazine, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy while it reorganizes!

According to reports:

“The Boca Raton, Florida-based publisher listed assets of less than $50,000 and debt of as much as $1 billion in its Chapter 11 filing today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan. A separate petition of operating subsidiary American Media Operations Inc.’s lists assets of $100 million to $500 million and debt of more than $1 billion. It terminated a previously proposed debt-exchange offer and announced on Nov. 1 that it would undertake a pre-packaged Chapter 11 filing."

Chairman and chief executive David Pecker said in a statement:

"The company is engaging in this strategy from a position of financial strength and confidence.”

Wow!

Seems like that at least have some sort of plan, though!

Best of luck!
