Howard Fineman: ‘I Am Not Smart Enough to Dupe Sidney Harman’

We wondered yesterday if Newsweek‘s Howard Fineman duped Sidney Harman by convincing him to buy the magazine and then decamping for The Huffington Post. Mr. Fineman responded yesterday in an interview with WWD‘s Matthew Lynch.

“I am not smart enough to dupe Sidney Harman,” he said of the speculation around his departure. “He’s got $900 million…he basically invented stereo. I couldn’t dupe him even if I wanted to.”
