What I found interesting was when the authors were talking about Magazines in a Democratic Society. Even though magazines are for the people, they put advertisers first. It is almost a contradiction (magazines companies views us as first purchasing their magazine, then telling us about the big issues around the world) . It shows us that money does talk and the magazine business is fragile.
I have an example from my own experience. I am subscribed to ST and sometimes there are a lot of information about fashion, business, beauty and etc. However, sometimes when I receive my magazine in the mail, most of it are advertisements thrown there and there. And it sucks, because when you purchase a magazine, you want to see more articles than ads to get to you purchase an item.
