"Imagine A Partnership Between The Owners Of The Titanic And The Hindenburg"

In 2005, Newsweek's Howard Fineman wrote:

A political party is dying before our eyes — and I don’t mean the Democrats. I’m talking about the “mainstream media,” which is being destroyed by the opposition (or worse, the casual disdain) of George Bush’s Republican Party; by competition from other news outlets (led by the internet and Fox’s canny Roger Ailes); and by its own fraying journalistic standards.

This month, Newsweek, owned by the Washington Post, begins a partnership with Air America. Icebergs? You're soaking in them!

Related: Newsweek's anouncement comes--coincidentally or not--hot on the heels of their cover story by David Frum denouncing Rush Limbaugh, who of course is Air America's Emmanuel Goldstein, and with the photo of a gagged Limbaugh, wishing he was off the air. About which, Jay Nordlinger has some thoughts that are well worth your time.
