Shhhh: The NY Times’ David Carr reports that MTV is not having parties or sending out press releases to launch MTV Magazine. Rather, it appears they are quietly giving David Carr an advance copy so that he can publicize in the NY Times how they are quietly putting out the magazine, or, the two-issue trial run of the magazine. Actually, the concept Carr describes (I haven’t seen it yet) sounds very interesting and creative. I’m looking forward to having my own MTV Magazine (or whatever it is called or will be called) as soon as I can get one.
