I'm not crazy about the masthead, but I'm not actually terribly opposed to the redesign. I think it will offer a cleaner, final product.

And I don't necessarily even think the infomercial is a bad idea.

The larger problem, again, is the insistence on adhering to a slowly dying medium, thus preserving production and circulation resources rather than invest in reporters and editors.

The product may look good, but if you can't adapt you're in trouble.

She still thinks her readers are retarded fourth graders.

"We'll make it easier for you to find things" ... "We'll have more boxes explaining how we got the story" ... "We'll hand you a roll of toilet tissue."

Is this what it is like to live in a nursing home?
