The Media Is Dying, an IV drip of journalistic schadenfreude, reports on a new gig for former Radar executive editor Aaron Gell: editor-in-chief of Hemispheres, United's inflight magazine. We say hurrah!
Put your cynicism underneath the seat in front of you! Yes, the seat-pocket reading world may seem like a comedown from cavorting with stars like Shannen Doherty, the subject of the defunct Radar's final cover story. But given readers' Internet-distracted flight from the printed word, the unconnected skies may be the last refuge of the great magazine makers. And mocking someone's gig? In these times, it seems like just another disposable habit of a deflated bubble. Just one question: Does this mean Gell must resign from ASSME, his support group for the pink-slipped?
