While that news was certainly big (and depressing), it didn’t have the global impact of today’s decision by Newsweek to end its 79-year print run as an iconic source of news and information.
Even though I’m a former subscriber (former because of the magazine’s slide toward opinionated journalism, an oxymoron up there with jumbo shrimp), I’m still saddened by the magazine’s demise.
Like Roger, I’m a dinosaur when it comes to the news. Sure, I enjoy my Wall Street Journal app, and frequently read news on various online sites, but nothing beats sitting back with a print newspaper or magazine, which still provide greater depth than any electronic resource.
Even though I’m no longer a fan, Newsweek, you’ll still be missed.
