Just in: God saves the JCmain
The Jewish Chronicle, ‘organ of Anglo-Jewry’ (est. 1741), which has been in the hands of liquidators for the past three weeks, has been bought out by a consortium of well-intentioned investors after the collapse of a proposed merger with a Jewish freesheet.
The editor, Stephen Pollard, has been restored to his green eyeshade. The birds outside are singing klezmer.

Personal interest: I am writing a Pepsyian plague column in the JC for the duration of Covid-19.
