WTF is up with effin' Newsweek?

    A few months ago they used " EFFIN' '" in a headline.

    This week's issue contains the headline, "WTF is up with SPF" in an infographic about sunscreen.

    Crossing the line? Anyone care anymore?

    Online, or in print?

    I think they're trying desperately to stay relevant. Not succeeding, IMO ... I got a gift subscription and don't remember the last time I really sat down and read it.

    It's Twitter in print.

    Their new editor who has no name, but only a symbol, thought of it.

    The Internet is over and done for.

    The new thing is going to be the print version of the Internet.

    Newsweek is like Tiger Woods shilling for Buick. Nobody's buying it.

    Ditto. Every week I get an issue and it goes directly into the trash can. It has become too editorialized and opinion-based, and the non-editorial/opinion content is geared more towards online - I follow Newsweek on Twitter just for that part of the content. Otherwise, the magazine is a sad shell of what it once was.
