Skip to comments.Newsweek.com Will Cease to Exist on July 19 (Only the Print Magazine will Remain)

Right now if you go to newsweek.com, you'll see a basic magazine website, updated with content from the print version of the mag and a top navigation bar that directs you to content on its sister site, dailybeast.com. But starting July 19, we hear, newsweek.com will no longer exist. Instead that URL will redirect users to a channel on the Daily Beast site, like its current "politics," "entertainment," and "fashion" verticals. The Newsweek channel will still have all the archived magazine content from before (unlike Time, Newsweek puts all of its print content online), and it will be edited and updated once a day to rotate features. Newsweek/Daily Beast editor Tina Brown and Chief Digital Officer Daniel Blackman decided it made the most sense to have all-new non-magazine content appear on the Beast homepage. As it is, that's how the system has been working for some weeks now, but the death of the newsweek.com URL marks the official end of what was once a fully staffed and hugely trafficked site in its own right.
Is Tina Brown a covert Tea Party operative?
NewsWeak. They can’t even give it away.
They’re doing that backwards, aren’t they. Oh well...it’s Newsweek, they never get anything right.
D'ya think maybe it is their message????
Naaaaaahhhhh...... keep shoveling socialism and whacko liberalism, Gnuzweak.
Whoa. All those brilliant geniuses at Newsweek couldn’t figure out how to turn a buck on the internet.
Happy Dance, Happy dance. I wonder how many shovel ready jobs they’ll loose?
Or maybe she bought Newsweek for a tax writeoff? The Newsweek building must have some sort of market value.
Yeah, they're going gangbusters within their core audience. Which is made up of people who either (a) have no money, or (b) don't spend their own money on things like Newsweek.
People are saturated with liberal news. The smart ones go to the internet to get real news, not more liberal drivel.
LOL- that makes sense because the paper magazine business is doing much better than the electronic media...
Good...then this assures no one will read their drivel...
If it wasn’t for the magazine rack at your local dentists office, the print magazine would have disappeared a long time ago.
Ain’t this going the wrong direction? I thought electronic was replacing dead tree, not the other way around.
Unless you put an Ipad under the litter.
which is mostly doctor's/dentist's office lobby waiting areas. And even then where it's essentially free.... nobody reads it.
If an unread magazine takes its website offline, does anyone notice?
They’ve got a website? I never go to the fascist websites for information. I always come here.
