Newsweek

I’ve had a Kindle subscription to Newsweek for a while now. I’m pretty far behind on my reading right now, but I am still reading it. I was disappointed to hear that The Washington Post is putting Newsweek up for sale. It’s actually a pretty good magazine.

It’s always possible someone interesting will buy it, and the quality will remain (reasonably) high. I’m worried that it will be bought by someone who’ll close the magazine, fire most of the staff, and just use the name for a generic news portal of some sort. Or it could get bought by Rupert Murdoch, which would probably result in a change in tone that would make the magazine much less interesting to me.

I guess if it goes under, or changes too radically, I’ll switch back to reading The Economist.
