Newsweek’s Last Print Cover Features A Hashtag

Newsweek magazine, the US’ largest weekly news magazine following TIME magazine, will cease print publication after 80 years at the end of this year, shifting entirely to online. The final issue will hit the newsstands today, featuring a black and white photograph of the former Newsweek building in New York City with hashtag emblazoned across it reading #lastprintissue – a particularly self-deprecating way of bidding farewell.
