Wow man, fark Newsweek. I already knew they weren't trustworthy, but now I see them as actually below FOX in credibility

Wow. They still had one of my favorite (American) covers

Had they been reporting on the internal affairs of the company since the shiatstorm began? It's more like there's no money left to run the shop.

Um... who is Newsweek's parent company? TFA was short on details.

That's a shame. I used to read Newsweek fairly regularly back in the 90s. Sounds like this is just another in a series of troubles for them. Scrappy up-and-comer Fox is still a reliable source of news, though, right?

Newsweek Media Group, formerly IBT (Intl. Business Times). A partnership of Etienne Uzac, a rich French guy, and Johnathan Davis. Neither of whom know or care a thing about journalism, apparently.

They were stodgy but respectable when they were owned by the same folks who owned WaPo. Ever since the Daily Beast merger, they've become as useless as an inflight magazine.

Oh.  I saw the reference to Newsweek Media Group but figured that was just the 'official' name for Newsweek. Especially when the article mentions the top brass in NMG were gone.

No, IBT adopted NMG as its name after the deal. Uzac and Davis seem to be weirdo pray-away-the-gay Christians. Details here.

i remember reading newsweek back in the day (my dad subscribed to it) always seemed to be a quality source of news reporting.

Indeed. I always felt the quality ran thus NW>Time>Life
Ironically, the entertainment factor ran the opposite. And therefore the reader's IQ grew smaller as you move Right.

For me it was:

The Economist > Rolling Stone > US News and World Reports > Playboy > Vanity Fair > Newsweek > Time > Life > People > National Enquirer > Weekly World News > Chick Tract

Newsweek is still around?

/ I prefer Foreign Affairs, their coverage of the Catalonia secessionists and Corsican movement towards autonomy has been amazing lately

NMG deserves everything they get. Corrupt as hell, their employees are basically trained to abuse each other. I was in their lobby a while back and someone chucked a water bottle at my head. They spit on the floor too. It's incredibly disturbing.

I subscribed to Newsweek for decades, but dropped them when they stopped reporting news about 10  years ago.  They couldn't adapt to the new media.  Instead of using The Economist as their model, they just jettisoned the news and went for fluff.  I just let my subscription lapse.
