Top 5 Magazines
Ask a magazine journalism major which five magazines he'd have delivered to him on a desert island and he'd say..
A magazine for hip, educated men that covers entertainment, culture, politics, sex and style with a sophisticated yet unpretenious tone. Yeah, so it's kind of like talking to me.
- Entertainment Weekly
Although its reviews may be a bit unrealiable, it covers music, movies and television more fully than anyone else, and in its 11 years, it's has avoided stooping to celebrity gossip.
- Mother Jones
It doesn't hide its liberal leanings, but the news magazine has strong journalistic integrity, covering all sides of an issue and covering the issues that matter.
- Vanity Fair
Great photography can go a long way, but Vanity Fair also offers some intelligent and enjoyable articles too. It's the best way to pretend you're a rich snob except cruise ships.
- The New Yorker
Skip the sidebars. Forget about pictures. This is where to go for just plain engrossing in-ds ranging from global issues to personal profiles. It's also has a long history of great fiction.
