SECOND BEST PRINT SAVIOR: Jared Kushner
When the New York Observer was up for sale in 2006, it looked like Tribeca bigwigs (including DeNiro) would buy it, prop it up for a few years and let it die like another New York Sun. Lucky for New Yorkers, scion of shady dealers Jared Kushner stepped in and, only a twenty-something, became a newspaper owner — like Charles Foster Kane. Now journalism students have another place to intern while scenesters and New Yorkistas still have a salmon tabloid to keep them up to date on wheelings and dealings.
