themodeman commented on Betrayed by the Zeitgeist she once channeled, Tina Brown invokes it one last timeZeitgiest, smeitgiest- the reason Newsweek took a tumble is simple: Under MS. Brown, and her predecessors, the "magazine" went from a well-respected and objective news weekly, to a biased tabloid rag that lurched further to the extreme left with each passing year. Much like Air America and countless other hard-left pablum, the market is small, overcrowded, and losing money or funded by the likes of Soros and friends. Only so much money can be poured into losing enterprises, and thus, rags like Time come out on top. Sadly, if this had happened many years ago when it was a reputable news source, most folks would be concerned. Now, only the journos and their ilk in the beltway and the salons of NY will shed a solitary, paltry tear for this sorry excuse of a supposed victim of an imagined"Zeitgeist." Don't let the pixels pummel you in the posterior on the way out, Newsweek. You will not be missed.
