JFK Jr.: Whither George?

D-Day is a week away for John F. Kennedy Jr.’s pet magazine George, reports the New York Post. The fate of the money-losing magazine will soon be decided at a powwow to be held by the Paris-based Hachette Filipacchi empire, the parent of George. The three-year-old political magazine has been through a number of staff members (including three different publishers in three years), ad pages for 1999 “have been in a freefall,” says the Post, “and Kennedy is said to be unhappy with the support he has received from Hachette.” The company’s four-year contract with Kennedy expires at the end of this year.
