Hearst Corporation

Self Description

November 2002: "The Hearst Corporation is one of the largest diversified communications companies. Its major interests include magazine, newspaper and business publishing, cable networks, television and radio broadcasting, internet business, TV production and distribution, newspaper features distribution, and real estate."

Third-Party Descriptions

April 2013: "Some papers have compromised by agreeing in certain instances to insert a bit of code in online articles that prevents them from being fetched by the major search engines. The stories can still be found in the paper’s digital archive, just as they can be found in bound volumes at the local library, but they do not show up on Google. The Hearst Corporation, a defendant in that Connecticut libel suit, is experimenting with such a program. The Times considered a similar policy a few years ago, and we decided it was a slippery slope. But perhaps it’s time to reopen that discussion."

February 2007: ...Hearst Corporation said that in recent years it had stopped hiring clearinghouses that use crews. But when subsequently asked why Redbook, a Hearst publication, appears among magazines sold by one crew, a Hearst representative e-mailed, “We constantly fight unauthorized agents,” adding, “It’s an ongoing battle.”

July 2006: Hearst will buy the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Monterey County Herald and give them to MediaNews in return for equity in MediaNews' non-Bay Area holdings. Gannett and Stephens will take minority shares in the Mercury News and Contra Costa Times through MediaNews' California Newspapers Partnership. Also, Stephens will have a minority interest with MediaNews in a new partnership that will own the Monterey County Herald.

Apr 28, 2013 Erasing History

QUOTE: The arrest story was obviously true when it was first published. But Connecticut’s erasure law has already established that truth can be fungible. Martin, her suit says, was “deemed never to have been arrested.” And therefore the news story had metamorphosed into a falsehood.

QUOTE: To students who regard Israel as an essential Jewish homeland, this event and others like it that are staged each year on University of California campuses seem hostile, like poorly concealed anti-Semitism - especially when the Israeli flag with its Star of David is paired with a Nazi swastika, says a new report by a UC fact-finding team seeking to understand Jewish students' experiences

Aug 04, 2009 Dead Ringers: Grave Robbers Turn to ID Theft

QUOTE: However, it may take days, weeks or months after a person dies for authorities to include a new death in their databases. Until then, criminals have free reign to open credit cards, get state identification cards and apply for a job using a dead person’s identity, says Jay Foley, the executive director of the Identity Theft Resource Center, a San Diego-based nonprofit organization. And although each organization keeps a record of deceased individuals, their databases don’t always overlap, Foley says.

Jul 30, 2009 Match Game: How to Cope With a Suspended 401(k)

QUOTE: The market’s losses caused palpable damage to retirement accounts over the last year: The median rate of return for 401(k) plans was negative 28.3% during 2008. Now, however, many workers are missing out on one of the biggest benefits of this investment vehicle....The cutbacks are unlikely to last, though. Employers know that a good retirement benefits package is a compelling draw for workers and that they’ll need to keep them if they want to attract and retain talent.

Jul 17, 2009 This Health-Care Reform Might Tax Us to Death

QUOTE: Investors are going to get taxed. You are going to get taxed. It's that simple. The people without health insurance -- the very people whom this is supposed to help -- are going to get taxed too. And millions of them will be left without insurance (even though they have to pay higher taxes). First, to the investors. According to the bill passed this week by the House of Representatives, any individual who makes more than $280,000 a year -- or any couple that makes more than $350,000 -- is going to pay a surcharge of at least 1% of income above those levels. The more you make, the more you pay.
