This was a long time coming. Why give Trump the credit?

What exactly was a long time coming? Firing 3 staff members?

You do know that this isn't the first time Newsweek went out of business, right?

Companies can be bought and sold or go bankrupt, but the brand will survive as long as someone thinks it still has some residual value. It may be owned by different people, but someone will still be publishing some sort of "news" under that name tomorrow, next month, and next year.

It's a bit like the Radio Shack brand that way.

Maybe Kimberley Clark can buy the brand and come out with Newsweek Brand toilet paper. :BigGrin3:
