    ...pulling the plug Dec. 31.


    The digital-only publication, supported by paid subscriptions and dubbed Newsweek Global, will be aimed at a "highly mobile, opinion-leading audience who want to learn about world events in a sophisticated context," [Tina] Brown said.

    The office has a subscription.

    Someone there takes it into the shitter to read and there it stays, in the communal reading pile, until the cleaning people throw it away.

    I haven't looked at an issue in years.

    Content, not platform, killed the print edition of Newsweek. It will eventually kill the online version, too.

    It'll be interesting. Slate seems to do OK with opinion-only, though it's backed by the Washington Post, right? Wonder how much revenue/profit it generates on its own. Like they say, opinions are like assholes ...
