Could this be an indicator of the reason for Newsweek's imminent demise?

Here’s a simple test: when you reach the supermarket checkout stand, which publication do you pull off the rack in search of breaking stories—the National Enquirer or Newsweek?

Breaking stories?  Newsweek?  Right.

No.  The only people who buy Newsweek are those who want Rosie O'Donnell's pithy analysis of current global macroeconomic circumstances and events.  Which amounts to about twelve subscribers, as it turns out.

The rest of us?

We turn to the National Enquirer to witness the ongoing Rosie O'Donnell train wreck.  That's entertainment.  And a gem that's well worth the price.

So Newsweek is shutting down its print edition.

Tree ... forest ... nobody around ... silence ...
