SI for kids?

That's funny. Kids in America can't read.

SI's circulation peaked 30 years ago and has been declining ever since. In 2018 it went biweekly and in 2020 it went monthly. Total annual circulation has fallen off a cliff:


The reason is hardly a mystery. When SI started up, it was one of the few sources of real sports reporting. TV broadcast a smallish number of sports events and that was that.

But then came ESPN and then the web, which combined to saturate the public with sports and sports commentary. There wasn't a whole lot of room left for week-old reporting that was stale by the time it landed in your mailbox.

And of course that's all against a backdrop of general interest magazines dying off. Life and Look died long ago. Newsweek is dead. TV Guide is still around, but it's a shadow of itself. Reader's Digest filed for bankruptcy twice and is now mostly online. Playboy died four years ago. National Geographic's circulation has dropped by 85% and was recently pulled off newsstands. Time magazine is still around but its readership is down 70% from its peak.

So that's that. Magazines are in trouble generally and the sports commentary market is wildly oversaturated. There's not much more to it than that.

We know Kevin Drum isn't sad that he can't see gay guys on the cover of Playboy and trans models on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition anymore because when that walking comorbidity isn't taking naked selfies on his toilet for his blog readers he's on porn hub fapping to gay tranny sex videos.

There’s an old saying about the news business: If you want to make a small fortune, start with a large one.

As the prospects for news publishers waned in the past decade, billionaires swooped in to buy some of the country’s most fabled brands.

Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, bought The Washington Post in 2013 for about $250 million.

Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, a biotechnology and start-up billionaire, purchased The Los Angeles Times in 2018 for $500 million.

Marc Benioff, the founder of the software giant Salesforce, purchased Time magazine with his wife, Lynne, for $190 million in 2018.

All three newsrooms greeted their new owners with cautious optimism that their business acumen and tech know-how would help figure out the perplexing question of how to make money as a digital publication. But . . .

Billionaires Wanted to Save the News Industry. They’re Losing a Fortune.

https://www.nytimes.com/2024/01/18/business/media/billionaires-news-me
dia-owners.html


You don't see Google or Microsoft billionaires purchasing news magazines to save from bankruptcy because Google and MS make their fortunes by taking away advertisement revenue and readership from those old news magazines, which are the reasons the magazines are in trouble, to begin with.

Special note to 6ix: you really are nuts, but then I have yet to meet a Trumptard who wasn't. Funny how Trumptards never make the connection between their stupidity/mental illnesses/foolishness and their other, seemingly disconnected but yet totally connected, misfortunes in America.

Here is the story of Bill Beard, a Trumptard who is now dead. He totally deserved it, but did not, until on his deathbed being interviewed by a friend, understand what suffering he had inflected on himself:
https://www.nytimes.com/2024/01/20/opinion/trauma-pain-assault.html
When it was far too late to correct, Bill Beard finally understands he was responsible for his failures, not the government.

The interviewer, a bleeding heart, believes that Bill Beard would have been fine if only the government had stepped in to compensate for Bill and all his relatives being absolutely irresponsible people who only seek pleasure for themselves with no feeling of responsibility to anybody. Sorry to tell bleeding hearts, but there no way the Federal government in DC can compensate for what Trumptards do to themselves and their children.

You've seen the photo before because I reposted it in the RWED years ago when Kevin was crying to his readers about his chronic health problems and begging for money, rewarding them with a naked selfie on his toilet, thankfully with his tiny little Democrat dick stuck between his massive fat legs.

The dude is a fucking trainwreck, and doesn't do your chronic and foolish arguments about Democrats being in perfect health because they vote Democrat any favors.

The cancer is swimming around his diseased Leftist brain, and the only question is whether he dies of a massive heart attack or stroke before the cancer finally gets him.


Say hi to your boy...


I'm not going to spend all day sifting through his diseased blog or the last 4 years of fff.net to find the selfie of him sitting naked on the toilet, but you know full well he took it and put it on the internet for the world (or at least his small cult of idiots) to see, and you stayed the hell away from that thread forever after that.

You can't buy TV GUIDE where I am any more but we do still have a locally printed tv mag. And National Geographic is still sold where I am as well. I see it everywhere there are mags sold.

But I am in BC. Can't speak for the rest of Canada.

National Geographic (U.S. and Canada only) has all kinds of subscription plans
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/

The online version is $19/year, increasing to $34/year in the second year.
The paper version is $39/year, increasing to $49/year in the second year.

And there are more subscription combinations where you receive both.

And there are subscriptions to Nat Geo Kids and another Nat Geo Little Kids and Nat Geo History, with the first year being cheaper.

It is owned by Disney. How do I know? This: "Yes! I would like to receive top content, special offers, and other updates from National Geographic and The Walt Disney Family of Companies."
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/

If you don't want to pay for Nat Geo because the money goes to Disney, there are pirated versions of the magazine. For example:
National Geographic USA - February 2024
Posted on Jan 23rd, 2024 at 3:52 pm in Magazines by Tornado
https://rlsbb.ru/national-geographic-usa-february-2024/

The pirates make other issues available, including Nat Geo Kids, Nat Geo History, Nat Geo Little Kids UK, etc.
https://search.rlsbb.ru/?s=National+Geographic

As in the movie business, the Disney magazine business cannot handle the FREE Pirate option and stay in business. But if your child does not have a tablet to read Nat Geo from, then the paper version printed by Disney is the only option for children.

Nah. I'm good.

I stopped caring about what NatGeo was putting out after they put a tranny kid on the cover a few years ago. I'm sure that was a Disney thing.

Big surprise, right? Another company driven into the ground by the House of the Mouse.

Get fucked, Disney.
