As an Aussie I always knew I would be fully informed if I read the Sydney Morning Herald, London Times, Washington Post, New York Times, Time and National Geographic.

Now they are all biased trash. Except the Nat Geo which just sells expensive vacations

Obvious. A vegan in hand-me-down clothes.

I use to work in Rockefeller Center in New York across from the Time Life Building. I remember coming to work at midnight and seeing limos lined up and down the block. They were there to wisk those editors working on the next weekly edition of Time home. Now I don't even think they have a print edition. I suspect the Limos are long gone too.

They have a pretty successful print edition. My parents get it. I prefer The Economist, but if it weren't for that I'd probably get Time:

Time (magazine)

List of magazines by circulation



You might be thinking of Newsweek. It went under and re-surfaced as an online only publication, and not a very good one.

Obviously someone still reads it with 3,000,000 subscribers in the US.
So I guess that metric means they don’t miss some of you canceling your subscriptions

As noted in your link.......

The following list of American magazines is in accordance with their paid and non-paid circulation
The thing you can't tell in circulation numbers is how many are actually subscribing to the periodical. These printed magazines are sending more and more complimentary or shelf sitting copies, just to have "circulation" numbers to attract advertisers. It's a losing battle, as the advertisers are on to it. The print mag business is in a death spiral and Time mag is clearly a shadow of it's former self.

I too prefer the Economist. Sometimes they go off the rails, but even then, it's thought provoking.

Lots of dentists waiting areas....

The problem with any printed media is that by the time the information is gathered, written, edited, printed, and distributed, it's OLD news compared with what's available for free online. By the time you read it in a printed magazine, the story has moved on and what you are reading is often no longer very relevant. How do you sell that? Even with all the free copies that are sent out, and the dentists and doctors office waiting rooms, I'm pretty surprised that they send out three million copies.

I also wonder that all these print publications, from the NY Times to printed magazines like Time, most of which have a distinctly liberal editorial slant and regularly pay homage to all the PC deities, including those involving the environment, manage to justify the tremendous amount of forest that has to be cut down, the nasty chemicals used to process those trees into paper, and the fossil fuels it takes to distribute the printed copies far and wide. They cause all that impact to the environment to produce something that they know will become trash in a week or less and they repeat it every day (or week), while constantly expressing concern about climate change and other environmental issues. It seems to me that if they really believed in what they print about these subjects, they'd cease printing hard copies and disseminate their information online only. Their failure to do that and their continuing to crank out millions of hard copies every day that they know will become pollution by the next day tells us what their top priority really is. I support their right to make a buck any legal way they can, but just wish they'd lose their holier than thou attitude and be a little more honest about what REALLY matters most to them, $$$.
