GQ beats the Economist and Wired! Style beats substance. It's happening in politics.
The New Yorker and the National Geographic are winners too in the 2008 National Magazine Awards. The National Geographic beat Time, which I prefer myself, but the Geographic is more popular and timeless.
The National Geographic also won the prize for Best Reporting with an article on China's Instant Cities.
Vanity Fair won the prize for Profile Writing for Pat Dollard's War on Hollywood.
Mother Jones was the winner in the 100,000-250,000 circulation category, beating another heavyweight, Foreign Policy.
- GQ won in the 500,000 to 1 million circulation category;
- The New Yorker in the 1 million to 2 million category; and
- The National Geographic in the over 2 million category, beating Time, People, Glamour and Martha Stewart Living. A pretty eclectic list.
Question: Is HuffPo getting to be the Fox News of the left? Daily Kos may be more to the left, but HuffPo is more foxy, the glitterati playing chatterati.
