No more Photoshopped Dianas: The cover of Newsweek's final print edition.   (Newsweek)

(Newser) – There will be no more weekly wondering what crazy cover concoction Tina Brown & Co. have put together to greet you in the supermarket checkout: Newsweek has printed its final print issue, and it is going out with an old-school-meets-new-school bow to itself, notes Mashable. The cover features a retro skyline of Newsweek's New York City office building combined with the hashtag #LastPrintIssue. It hits newsstands tomorrow. Newsweek now becomes Newsweek Global, which the company calls an online-only "worldwide edition targeted for a highly mobile, opinion-leading audience who want to learn about world events in a sophisticated context."

No loss here; I stopped subscribing to NEWSWEEK back in the early 80's. Only time I'd read a copy was either at the dentist office or barber shop.

I thought they charged too much for a magazine that was mostly advertisements. There was little "news" in it to begin with, it was mostly a rehash of the "news", and too much "commentary".

And watch for the next announcement that Newsweek goes completely out of business! Newsweek is not API or UPI after all! You know, online news changes every few minutes and there is no publically-archivable digital news... so documentable "publishing" goes right out the window along with history! People are so stupid to endorse, accept and use this new digital lifestyle! People stupidly using debit and credit cards to replace cash are endorsing Citibank's two-decade old request of Congress to stop printing currency and stop minting coins, which eliminates people's ability to conrol their own spending and saving without being commercially and governmentally monitored and even controlled by mommy government and daddy employer {per my letter to the editor of Riverfront Times (Saint Louis) that was published under the title The Mommy-Daddy Principle}! People do not realize how that undermines democracy to ensure commercial communism!
