News weeklies vs. newspapers

Newsweek’s editor Jon Meacham thinks news weeklies are better positioned to survive than newspapers.

I don’t know.

For news, timeliness is vital. Newspapers are better positioned to become continuous news sources (mere daily updates don’t cut it). For perspective, variety is the key, and multiple blogs do that better than any one publication.

I’d actually be very nervous about my immediate future if I worked for a news weekly.
