There have been a number of attempts over the past few years to revive the sagging news weekly magazine Newsweek (including an amusing attempt to stop being thought of as a news weekly, despite the name). There's also the still confusing merger with the website The Daily Beast. Still, old media tends to live on well past its sell-by date, as you can usually find enough advertisers who will pay just based on name recognition alone. However, it looks like Newsweek may really be reaching the end of the road as the latest issue apparently could only muster up a grand total of six advertisements. Kind of makes you wonder why they even bothered printing the magazine...
