Oh yeah? LA Times columnist Geraldine Baum’s take on the magazine scene:
A couple of hundred people run the entire magazine industry, and primarily they watch each other all day. It’s a very internal conversation: They are all driven by the same market research; they are all under the same pressure to be hip and to confront the reality that most of their readers are spending an increasing amount of time on the Internet; they all read Page Six gossip and Keith Kelly’s media column in the New York Post; and they all eat lunch at about a dozen restaurants including Michael’s, the Palm, and DB Bistro, where they regularly scarf down $28 hamburgers.
She forgot to say they all read this weblog.
