Newsweek to swap news for opinion

Newsweek magazine is slimming down, swapping news for opinion and cutting staff, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The major revamp of the magazine will see it have more photos and opinion pages and reduce down the news content, making it a competitor to The Economist.

The magazine axed 111 jobs earlier this year, but according to WSJ it is unclear how many jobs will go as a result of the latest changes.
