Jim Colton: Goodbye Newsweek!

A quote from the blog post: “I believe the magazine strayed away from its strengths as it searched for a rebirth in our changing times…simply for the sake of change…rather than for the sake of its readers and what their core subscribers actually paid good money to read. The nail in the coffin, in my eyes, was when a certain editor decided to turn Newsweek into the New Yorker….knowing full well there was a great risk of losing much of their 3.1 million subscribers. They lost more than half that with current subscriptions at around 1.5 million. So much for the first four letters of the magazine.”

I used to subscribe to Newsweek when I lived in various small towns in the US and the local newspapers mainly covered car crashes and high school football. But that was a long time before we had access to the news via the internet. Even before local delivery of the NY Times was available.
So many magazines went the way of Newsweek. Perhaps Colton’s analysis is a bit simplistic.
