New Zealand businessman Todd Scott has expressed interest in buying "The Australian Financial Review" if Fairfax Media’s proposed merger with Nine Entertainment Company proceeds. Scott owns "The National Business Review", a weekly business newspaper that boasts about 5,000 subscribers. He says a deal to acquire the AFR would be backed by a consortium of wealthy New Zealanders. Scott adds that the consortium would look at acquiring Fairfax’s NZ division, Stuff, if the AFR were not for sale.
