Run to Your Newsstand

By PAM BERNS
The July 7 issue of Crain’s Chicago Business is filled with page after page of Chicago Facts illustrated with reader-friendly charts and graphs and fun trivia. It also has a short piece on the upcoming war of “glamour” magazines in Chicago dedicated to throwing celebrity parties and writing about their advertisers.

How long will it be before readers find these magazines redundant and the articles superficial? How long will it take for the audience o find that the editorial no longer speaks to them? I find it sad that the covers and content of almost every magazine in Chicago list advertisers on their covers and inside, each article panders to the advertiser? Is the truth for sale to the highest bidder?
