I truly believe that if they were an actual balanced news source - with insightful and unbiased commentary, they would still be financially viable.

In 2003, worldwide circulation was more than 4 million, including 2.7 million in the U.S; by 2010 it was down to 1.5 million (with newsstand sales declining to just over 40 thousand copies per week).

I believe quite the contrary. As managing editor, Evan Thomas, is a vile evil little man who is intellectually vested in liberalism and hatred for conservatism.

It could not happen to a worse fellow. I hope he’s relegated to the point where he has to develop his own little blog that he has to blog pimp constantly it for advertiser hits. A nasty little man.

Like I said in the previous thread, the death nail of this rag was when the Daily Beast bought it. Liberal activist nutjob (Rolling Stone creep) Matt Taibbi, who I despise, was a bigwig at that stupid magazine. If only TIME magazine got it back to the Henry Luce era, they would gain some more subscribers.

Seems to be a lot of these on the left.

I note that the first cover of Newsweek was covered with pictures of Nazis. Do you suppose they’ll close the circle with pictures of the Obama administration on their last cover?

I'm having alot of trouble feeling any sympathy towards them. Maybe if they put a stuffed toy in the rubble, they'll play my heartstrings.

Watching this dissemination of the (liberal) print media isn’t really going to solve their problem.. It is exactly what we have been seeing across the entire spectrum of their cultural pollution..

Most American people have decided they reject the socialist, atheist, immoral, and secular ideology, and not their aversion to holding a folded paper..

After they fail in this new progression I expect they will evolve into just Texting their stupid propaganda and call that progress.. HA!

I agree. The problem is content, not media.

You mean I won’t be able to not buy Newsweek anymore? Where can I go now to not read Gloria Borger’s columns? Oh yeah, the internet.

Buh bye. Y’all can put your resumes in binders. Binders for men, binders for women.
