I used to subscribe to Newsweek years ago until they put Newt Grinrich on the cover and titled it "The Loser."
"The magazine, published by the Time Inc. division of Time Warner, plans to move its publication day to Friday from Monday to attract more readers on the weekend and increase sales."
Yes, I know that all week long I look forward to Fridays so I can buy Time magazine and spend all weekend reading it. This should drop their sales by about another 26%.
It appears they want to blame the "economy" with "softer retail market contributed to the downturn"
I don't read these rags on the web either!
TIME is one of the worst of the RAT party mouthpieces. Good riddance to another lefty -- let's see what is the word for below the tabloid level??-- rag.
As with a slump in the recording industry, maybe these news maagazines are not producing anything worth buying.
Maybe it is the medium.
But maybe it is the message that people are not buying.
The cover sells at the Newsstand. Which covers DID SELL and which covers DID NOT SELL?
I haven't read any of the rags for years literally decades.
I picked up a Newsweel while in a waiting room and started to laugh--Newsweek used to be a fairly thick glossy rag. Noticed US News and World Report and Time as well. They are all more like the thickness of a coupon section of a small town grocery store. All the advertizers have apparently fled and the remaining ads are as lame as the content of the magazine.
Time should change the name to Hard Times. Quite remarkable reduction in comparison to the fat news mags of the seventies.
The Treason Times getting the hanging it deserves.

All of these shills say the same thing about "the internet" as if it were a demon that sprang full blown from the brow of Algore. None of them have the integrity to fill out the full story:
The quality of information available on the net is so much more substantive, immediate, and yes accurate than the average warmed over hash of last-week's news offered by the likes of TIME Magazine. There just is no reason to waste dollars on old news, delivered by stale and twisted writing.
