A Turn of the Page for Newsweek
The Daily Beast ^ | October 18, 2012 | Tina Brown, Baba Shetty

Posted on 10/18/2012 5:21:55 AM PDT by PittsburghAfterDark

We are announcing this morning an important development at Newsweek and The Daily Beast. Newsweek will transition to an all-digital format in early 2013. As part of this transition, the last print edition in the United States will be our Dec. 31 issue.

Meanwhile, Newsweek will expand its rapidly growing tablet and online presence, as well as its successful global partnerships and events business.

Newsweek Global, as the all-digital publication will be named, will be a single, worldwide edition targeted for a highly mobile, opinion-leading audience who want to learn about world events in a sophisticated context. Newsweek Global will be supported by paid subscription and will be available through e-readers for both tablet and the Web, with select content available on The Daily Beast.

PLEASE LET ME BE FIRST!

I am thrilled to be able to post this since I have a long tirade of anti-Newsweek posts in my hat. Seeing this first thing this morning after breakfast made me whoop.

How's that hope and change working for you MSM? The bowl is starting to swirl with the rest of your POS compatriots soon to follow.

YES!!! I guess more unemployed liberal journalists out there. Maybe they can write some blogs for free for the Huffington Post now.

The dying acts of a horribly biased anachronism that is trying to save the last vestiges of its ‘intellectual base’ by forsaking the working class drivers, printers, distributors, etc.

This will give their biased writers/editors some time to find other insurgent jobs, at the expense of the working class that supported them all those years. In the end, the cause wasn’t the workers who printed it but the diseased minds of the wretches that wrote it.

It is owned by the Daily Beast, the home of that idiot liberal Rolling Stone columnist Matt Taibbi.

It was liberal but fair when Katherine Graham of the Washington Post owned it, but when the Beast got a hold of the magazine, it became moonbat ville.

Sadly, TIME used to be CONSERVATIVE when Henry Luce ran it...but after he died, it became an anti conservative crap rag.

Newsfreek has been relegated to the dustbin of history. Hooray! The dead tree media avalanche has barely begun but will pick up speed and then bury them all.

I share your enthusiasm of the death of Newsfreek.

"News-Week" was launched in 1933 by Thomas J.C. Martyn, a former foreign-news editor for Time. He obtained financial backing from a group of U.S. stockholders "which included Ward Cheney, of the Cheney silk family, John Hay Whitney, and Paul Mellon, son of Andrew W. Mellon". Paul Mellon's ownership in Newsweek apparently represented "the first attempt of the Mellon family to function journalistically on a national scale." The group of original owners invested around $2.5 million. Other large stockholders prior to 1946 were public utilities investment banker Stanley Childs, and Wall Street corporate lawyer Wilton Lloyd-Smith. The first issue of the magazine was dated 17 February 1933. Seven photographs from the week's news were printed on the first issue's cover.

Newsweek was once a great publication. Its writers included Henry Hazlitt, author of Economics in One Lesson (New York: Harper, 1946), a classic that is still in print, and Ralph de Toledano, whose Seeds of Treason (1950), the story of the Alger Hiss spy case, was "a Newsweek book" published for the magazine by Funk & Wagnalls.

I think you are correct. My dentist has pictures of him and his wife with President and Laura Bush in the White House. He has the Newsweak publications in his office with his business address. Same for my former doctor. He hates 0 bummer care and may retire.

Remember their radio ads—which reflected their guerrilla war against the gigantic TIME?

"The one newsweekly that separates fact from opinion!"

They punted that strategy around 1980, mebbe.

From the comments section:

“Meh... Pay for information? Not likely. Any information out there is pretty much free, so all I’d be paying you for is highlighting important information, and your opinion.

1. Emphasis: I can highlight information for myself. That’s the way I see the net eventually becoming. Providers provide information and context, users provide formatting and emphasis. You determine content, I decide how I view it.

2. Opinion: I don’t really care for it. The only person who represents my opinion is me. I’m tired of news organizations brainwashing people into believing that the news organization fully represents their opinion. That’s the problem with a two-party political system and news in general, no one is fully represented. Americans can solve most of these issues on our own, but we’re forced into these cookie-cutter platforms, a choice between standing still, and progressing to a slippery slope.

So in short, it appears I’m saying, I don’t need you. And I think you’ll find that’s how most people feel.”

:We are announcing this morning an important development at Newsweek and The Daily Beast.”

hahahaha, in your own minds, you maroons. Only fools will now pay for this junk. Similar to a local newspaper who we told repeatedly to stop trashing our driveway with it, they’ll need ot keep it all free. But, since we now have a couple of birdies, it comes in real handy for keeping the cage clean!

“...for a highly mobile, opinion-leading audience who want to learn about world events in a sophisticated context”

Yeah, that one leaped out at me too. It inspired me to conjure a skit for my fantasy “Conservative Saturday Night Live” show, in which a pair of winos under a bridge discuss this, triggered by accidentally reading this in a back issue, lamenting that another source of toilet paper was going to disappear, discussing how this sentence must be talking about themselves, since after all,they’re mobile as they move from mission to mission for free meals, they’re opinion-leading, since they are connoisseurs of the differences between fine dining wines such as MD 20-20 and Wild Irish Rose, and sophisticated too, as one wino pulls out his iPad and signs up for Newsweek Global.

Tina Brown destroyed the New Yorker. It’s always been a mystery to me why anyone would continue to put her in charge of anything. But she keeps moving on, with a path of destruction behind her.

Evelyn Waugh would roll over in his grave if he knew that the name, “The Daily Beast,” had been stolen from his novel, Scoop. Or maybe he wouldn’t, since that was a comic vision of the yellow press and its crazy magnates which fits the new liberal media pretty well.

And Waugh also understood, as we see in his Sword of Honor trilogy, that there’s not that much difference between Nazis and Communists.

Now if only we could get the New York Times to join them.

Give it 5-10 years and even your favorite Conservative or hobby publications will most likely be digital, given how cheap decent tablets are getting and how expensive print editions are getting and how they are having to jockey with online-only media.

The days of buying software or periodicals in stores are fading fast.
