Well this is confusing. Newsweek/Daily Beast was co-owned by Barry Diller and Harman’s late husband. Sidney Harman died in April 2011 at 92. This obit in the Times said that his estate was assuming his ownership share, but no individual was named.
Soon after that, Adweek said that Jane Harman was taking her late husband’s place on the board. And Adweek raised questions about her editorial influence as a political actor over the magazine and website.
Wow. I didn’t know that Haim Saban was a media mogul either!
