When Entertainment Weekly first came out, it was a snarky, helluvah fun read.

Then at some point after one of the big media conglomeration cycles, they moved to not really covering entertainment, but merely being a shill.

I stopped my subscription a few years ago, but while researching something a couple weeks ago I came upon a "get 4 issues free, then cancel" offer, so signed up to see how they are now.

Wow. The decline since is phenomenal. It's about the most content-less magazine I've ever picked up on purpose. Over half the "articles" are just lists of "what's cool!" or "see this!"
