The Advocate: Dueling Thoughts
Yesterday, ex-editor of The Advocate wrote a scathing letter in The Huffington Post regarding the editorial direction of the iconic mag. You be the judge.
"What the hell happened? What colossal cluster of f-ups managed to devastate a magazine that was so important even ten years ago that every serious news media in the world turned to it for back up sourcing when covering gay issues?"
Ironically, Paul Colichman, CEO of Here Media wrote a letter
to his readers. In it he states:
Dear Valued Readers,
Fourteen months have passed since Here Media integrated the Advocate and Out brands into our company. As we are about to release our year-end issues, I thought it a good time to share our vision regarding these venerable and iconic properties.
