Newsweek is a Pulp Magazine
I understand Newsweek is reentering the market of “relevant” news magazines with an expose on the Trump Organization. Although I cannot speak to this story, it is our duty to note that Newsweek is not the magazine it once was. It is not even the magazine which was left for dead by the Daily Beast. The Newsweek of today is owned by a dangerous cult and largely acts as that cult’s mouthpiece. In this case, the cult is probably out to raise some money with its Newsweek asset, as they have with a slew of sensationalistic stand alone “Neo Pulp” offerings. I would treat anything Newsweek has to say with utter suspicion. Since its relaunch, the cult has greenlighted any number of stories which have turned out to be pure fabrications. Newsweek so far has all of the credibility of National Enquirer with about half the entertainment value.
As fun as this slam on Trump sounds, don’t buy in. Do not buy Newsweek. It is worse than a waste of money.
And it’s giving money and attention to a cult. So don’t do it.
