Stop the presses …

Magazines are a brilliant invention, says Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter | Media | (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Carter, editor of Vanity Fair since 1992, is quoted as saying: "A magazine is a brilliant invention. You take the best things you can find from around the world, you put together great stories, great photography and you give it to the consumers for $5."
Someone please let me know the next time a great story runs in Vanity Fair. I only see it in waiting rooms, but it looks to me as if it only gives new emptiness to vacuity.

  1. I recall reading that Ernest Hemingway described magazines as "chewing gum for the mind." That sums it up for me.
