I have been a fan of Forbes magazine and especially of Forbes issues which include lists (for instance Richest people, Best corporations to work for etc). Hence, I was disappointed with the latest issue from Forbes – The Forbes celebrity 100. The problem is – there is so little content. Just a list and three or four people covered in that list. A large portion of that issue is extensive advertorials (one about Greece, one about Environmental protection agencies and one about IPTV). I certainly did not pay money hoping to read these advertisements and so little content. This is very poor coming from Forbes and I don’t recommend that you buy this issue
In contrast the online coverage is a LOT better and I think that’s all you need i.e. don’t bother with the print edition.
I have never seen such contrast in content between online and print – with print being so content poor. Maybe this is a broader trend of the demise in print media.
