Newsweek‘s New Format

Howard Kurtz reports on Newsweek’s new format:

That step — along with a redesigned, revamped publication that hits newsstands today — may well determine whether the 76-year-old newsmagazine survives. Newsweek will concentrate on two things — reporting and argument — while kissing off any recap of the week’s developments.

Then shouldn’t a name change be in order?  Newsweek no longer fits, no?  I’d go with Newsweak, but that’s just me.  Olbermann’s Pundit Review fits as well.
