I’m pretty sure they could make millions selling links or sponsored posts from the (“shut down”) Newsweek.com domain to SEO consultants.

It would be quite conceivable to price a link from Newsweek.com at $500-$1000 or more. Hire 1 person to manage the sales of 100 links per day and you’re generating $36 million for the overhead of a hosting account and one sales person.
