gorbud commented on Betrayed by the Zeitgeist she once channeled, Tina Brown invokes it one last timeIs it possible that this magazine tanked because it was horrible and NOT worth the money required to read it?The political skewering of every story and person profiled got really tedious and BORING. The inaccuracies or out right falsehoods mitigated against the magazines creditability. Even the use of the tired old word "zeitgeist" illustrates how out of touch this relic truly is. All the old left wing is dying off and new readers don't want to be assaulted with cliches and tired "analysis" of things they read a week ago. Their big deal "Person of The Year" has devolved into a silly popularity contest of no interest to most people outside the closed world of media. They are about as "hip" as an old 1960s college professor still longing for the groovey days of his youth. Sad that is all it happens to be.
