Telling rebuke of Tina Brown trying to keep the print edition of Newsweek alive and relevant. Sorry, it lost relevance decades ago. It was just another weekly magazine filled with crap nobody wanted to read. Sensationalist stories may have helped sell subscriptions to dentist offices, but the rest of the world flew by and never turned back.
This quote from the article says it all:
…(T)here’s no need for a Newsweek to explain What It All Means (serious capital letters included), when so many of us are doing so constantly and fluidly online.
It’s a story told a million times. We went online and no longer needed to wait a week for a recap and analysis of that week’s pertinent events. As we went online, we looked back at the weekly magazines and realized they were never that good to begin with. Politically biased, economically illiterate, and just plain boring. We wasted our money on this?
I am happy to see these dinosaurs go. They are zombie businesses trudging along, trying to stay relevant. They will not last. Progress marches on.
