Quote, unquote: Death by "just-good-enough"

"Newsweek and The Daily Beast are meant to be compatible, but one could argue The Daily Beast is the very thing killing Newsweek. It's the kind of site that will make it impossible to charge $24.99 a year for a digital subscription. What TDB and its ilk offer -- original writing from a few big names mixed with aggregation-with-attitude -- turns out for many readers to be a just-good-enough substitute to a newsweekly."
-- Michael Learmonth from an Ad Age article "Did the Daily Beast eat Newsweek?"
