Church and State merge, resulting in

Time Magazine has erased the line between editorial and advertising. Explicitly. Proudly.


The result? The current issue has a total of three pages of ads.


Plus, the cover story is a paean to Starbucks, making readers suspect that someone bribed a priest.

So, Time fails and journalism is made a little less trustworthy. Nice job, Time!

  1. Was Bloomgarden-Smoke serious or sarcastic when concluding with this?

    “The content industry includes more digital, more video, a lot more “experiential events” and becoming more active as a platform to sell products.

    And really, what magazine editor wouldn’t be happier with that?”

    If I hadn’t already, I’ve read my last issue of Time.
