The Appalling Clickbait at The New Republic


In case you were wondering what would happen to the New Republic once it converted itself into a vertically integrated digital media company and got rid of everyone who could write, look no further than this assortment of empty-headed click bait stories.

Yeah, that's vertically integrated, all right. Whee!

It'd be funny if it wasn't so appropriate.

Who Is Desperate to Read Newsweek?


I don't know how this could ever be considered a smart move.

The print media is fading, the technology for tablets is getting better and better, and the experience of reading a magazine is changing. Add that to the fact that Tina Brown killed Newsweek's brand and you end up with the media rightfully pointing out that this is a dubious decision made by an "obscure" media company. Ouch.

Newsweek should have died a long time ago. And it should have pulled a dozen other titles down with it.
