That's what Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Michael Klein says he's heard from unnamed "publishing sources around town." His sources tell him that Review Publishing LP, the parent company of the alt-weekly, is asking $25 million for the paper and signing confidentiality statements with prospects. While neither Review President Anthony Clifton nor Vice President Jim Stokes responded to Klein's requests for comment, the Weekly's editor says he's heard nothing about a sale. "It would be a shock to me," Tim Whitaker says.
