Last Issues of Newsweek & Smart Money

I don't read either regularly, though I used to, but I noticed both were last/farewell issues at the library yesterday. So I gave them both a final look yesterday.

Sad I guess, but inevitable...

I used to read Smart Money. It was a nice financial magazine but I didn't use their stock picking. They are still available online through Yahoo.

In my opinion, Newsweek has deteriorated quite a bit in recent years. They seem to be going mainly for the "sensationalism" effect in many articles, rather than sticking to good, objective, fact-based journalism. Bloomberg Businessweek is a much better news weekly, for my money.

Yes, Bloomberg has good articles. That and The Wall Street Journal are top notch -- quality reads.

When The Economist goes, that will be a sad day, though the best will continue online...

I have this mental vision that a paper magazine 30 years from now will be a novelty and the thing to read.

"oh wow"...that actually put this on paper. Cool!"

I remember when Newsweek was a worthwhile read, but at this point I'll miss only the memory of what it used to be, not the rag it has become.

I've subscribed to "The Week" for a couple of years, it's a good encapsulation of the major stories from several perspectives (gleaned directly from other magazines and online sources). For me it's important to have this type of info "push" rather than depending on just "pull" from online sources. It's the best way I've found to assure I don't entirely miss news stories or various perspectives on them.

Plus, the Economist (best use yet of my airline miles).
