Killing Me Softly With Her "Talk": Why Tina Brown's 10 Excuses for Killing "Newsweek" Are ALL DEAD WRONG

Mr. Magazine's(TM) Evaluation of Newsweek's Demise Exclusively on CommPRO.biz

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/31/12 -- Newsweek magazine was launched nearly 80 years ago, on Feb. 17, 1933. For almost 70 years of its life, it shared an eagerly awaited weekly read together with TIME magazine, the leader in the field of news magazines, then and now, for millions of readers across America. Now Newsweek has announced that it will stop printing. Its last edition will be available at newsstands today, Dec. 31.

Editor Tina Brown cited several reasons for the demise of the printed edition of the magazine. Much of that is her fault. Brown took over as editor in February 2011. Rather than merging The Daily Beast, Ms. Brown's creation on the web, she folded Newsweek.com into the Daily Beast (the least of the two known brands). According to Samir "Mr. Magazine™" Husni, Ph.D., one of the leading publishing industry business analysts, the mainstream media will give Brown a "pass" on the significance of this story and where blame should be placed for the failure of one of journalism's major weekly periodicals.

"In order to make sure that this important milestone in the history of American magazines receives the attention it deserves, and it in order to set the record straight," said Husni, "I have decided to utilize the services of CommPRO to release my latest blog entry regarding the magazine business and the demise of the print edition of Newsweek."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
