Newsweek announces staff cuts in hair salon in six months

Remember how we told you that print journalism is doomed?  (Doooomed, I tell’s ya!)

Newsweek, which you probably read in waiting rooms when the Highlights is bogarded, has paid off 111 of its writers and staffers to go hit the showers … at some other magazine or home … permanently.

We’re not saying we were right, but Newsweek isn’t firing these staffers because they’re selling too many print issues.  Of course, this blog posits that Newsweek‘s woes began when they started selling back issues to the nation’s dental offices.  (This week’s big scoop: “Can Lance Armstrong win seventh Tour de France???”)
