Newsstand Spotlight: The Daily Beast

News Body:
Published by Newsweek, the Daily Beast first launched in 2008 and is the Library's Newsstand Spotlight for this week. Unlike the other spotlights we've had in the past, the Daily Beast focuses almost exclusively on politics and pop culture. A good source for news on politics if you want to avoid the mega-media influence, the Daily Beast prides itself confronting those that feel they are above everyone else. Through Newsstand, students can access full-text Daily Beast articles going back to 2012.
