Magazine circ-cooking is a federal crime

Magazine circ-cooking is a federal crime: (From AdAge.com) “In the latest development in a federal investigation of circulation fraud in the newspaper and magazine industries, the government has accused two publishing executives with trying to falsely inflate the circulation of the niche title Laptop.”

When one blogs about a topic for a long time, an item like this jogs one’s memory:

Two years ago, during the Rosie vs. G+J USA trial, the CFO of the company testified they cooked the circulation of that magazine.

Hmmm. I wonder how long the statute of limitations is on circ cooking.
