Eleanor Clift abandons Newsweek

Eleanor Clift, veteran White House reporter for the once-proud Newsweek, is saying goodbye to her long-time employer:

I pride myself on being a survivor, and in the 50 years since I first wandered into Newsweek, I’ve seen a lot of change and made a lot of adjustments. The magazine that I knew is long since gone. But while I lament what has been lost, I recognize that not to change is to die, and that Newsweek, a storied brand, has another life to live, this one without me.

Clift, however, isn't retiring. She's simply moving to Newsweek's former sister publication The Daily Beast.

Newsweek was sold in August to an obscure company called IBT Media. Barry Diller, the previous owner of Newsweek, infamously said in April that purchasing the struggling magazine was "a mistake."
