The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Wednesday, November 27, 2002

Almost two months after first announcing that its magazine properties were for sale, Weider Nutrition International has sold them to American Media Inc..

American Media is the publisher of everyone's favorite tabloid, the National Enquirer. They do have a few more straight-laced consumer magazines, and with this purchase, they'll add Shape, Muscle & Fitness and Fit Pregnancy, among others.

So yes, this little merger will spawn plenty of late-night jokes about how the pages of Fit Pregnancy will now include what to do in the event you give birth to a two-headed space alien.
