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 this for real?
I would start laughing if someone could confirm to me that it was.
I wonder how Newsweek would be doing if it hadn't spiked the Lewinsky story.
It’s hardly a magazine anymore.
...more like a pamphlet or tract.
Liberal, of course.
A dollar just doesn’t buy what it used to.
Yeah, that whole Internet thing is just a fad. Print news magazines is where the real growth is.
Both are being subsidized due to not generating enough online ad revenue. Makes sense to minimize the costs for the two sites.
LOL: you read my mind.
I wouldn't touch it for two reasons:
1.) It's full of liberal crap.
2.) Yeah, I'm going to pick up a magazine that's been fingered by a thousand diseased individuals.
On the upside, it will still be stinking up newstands. As for the online part, RIP, you liberal rag.
See what happens when you embrace the dark side. A new world is coming and its now a worker’s utopia of the left.
It’s not even good enough as a substitute for TP!
Ur Doin it WRONG!
But that’s what we should encourage the Left to do! I might have to send them a thank you email saying just how smart that move is to gain more readership!
Encouraging the Left to self-destruct could be the next big sport from the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy!
they gonna hire some Town Criers too?
I had not seen the Sarah Palin cover.
I like it!
Excellent bra choice, Governor!
Are they insane? They are luddites or something.
Sounds like self-inflicted suicide.
They would be better off saying they will only be available on Kindles and Nooks.
