The community here, like in a lot of corners of the internet, seems to be very anti-print, anti-establishment media and like to rail on the system and point out its failings. No one is saying they can't wait until the article hits the newstands, but rather to read it online.
The question is, even if you have seen the article online or heard all the sordid detials by the time it's available at stores, will you BUY the magazine? My answer is easy: yes. I consider it fine work and, quite frankly, a service. It is more than worth my $5 and I also think it would be nice to have for years down the line, laying around the house as an iconic snapshot of the times.
