RIP Newsweek 1933-2012.


This morning it was announced that Newsweek is ending its print version, and in 2013 will be all digital. After 80 years in print, the magazine will finally be off the newsstands. Its decline has been obvious, and we are not sorry to see them go.
Two years ago Tina Brown bought the magazine and made it a unit of her upstart online Daily Beast news service. The magazine changed from a streamlined format to a dumbed-down picture book, and despite this cover, its liberal bias was worse than ever.
Chris Harper says “As a former Newsweek reporter when it was a good magazine, I wish Tina Brown and Barry Diller would simply move on without the Newsweek brand.”
