Newsweek may make it by doing this, but I wouldn't given them even odds. Newsweek faces stiff competition for that market, but it has realized the weekly news summary magazine died with free news on the Internet.
In Canada, McClones was re-worked into a somewhat interesting conservative magazine that appeals to people like me who enjoyed the original National Post for its quirkiness and eclectic writers. Still, my gut says the new Maclean's is out of step with these recessionary times and the new Obama world. I'd say there's about a 3 to 1chance Maclean's will be gone in five years or sooner. Maclean's has moved far too far from the Canadian magazine-buying mainstream and puts far too much online.
