Another print publication has died. Human Events published its last edition last week and will remain solely an internet news site. The newsweekly which covered the conservative movement for 70 years, was a favorite of President Reagan. The paper also cut its staff.
Human Events, for decades the lone national conservative newspaper before the Fox era, on Wednesday announced that the grim reaper killing off print publications around the nation has reached its door on Capitol Hill. The Feb. 18 issue currently on the stands will be its last.
But Human Events, Ronald Reagan’s fave, like the Christian Science Monitor, U.S. News and Newsweek before it, will live on via the Internet, where it receives 1 million visitors a month.
“This was a difficult decision, and one we did not make lightly,” said publisher Joe Guerriero. “As everyone knows, the newspaper business is a very tough business. Contrast that with the explosive growth of digital media, which we’ve seen with our own websites, HumanEvents.com and RedState.com.”
