washingtonpost.com: Microsoft in Talks to Sell Highly Rated Online Magazine, Slate

washingtonpost.com: Microsoft in Talks to Sell Highly Rated Online Magazine, Slate "Eight years after Microsoft Corp. launched an online magazine in a groundbreaking attempt at cyber-hipness, Slate may be sold.
More than half a dozen media companies have expressed interest in buying the Internet publication, and the leading contenders are the New York Times and The Washington Post, a source familiar with the discussions said yesterday. The source declined to be named because of the delicate nature of the talks."

Glad to know Slate isn't going away -- I've been a fan and daily reader of its Today's Papers column for many years
