#1 . . . just landed a cover on a "major" magazine . . . called Paper. Never heard of it before and they think this will help their circulation? Not so much.

#2 This "Paper" magazine has a circulation of what? A couple hundred maybe? Likewise I've never heard of this magazine before this article. which was probably the whole point.

#3 From Wikipedia:

Paper (magazine)
Paper is a New York City-based independent magazine focusing on fashion, popular culture, nightlife, music, art and film.

Paper was founded in 1984 by Kim Hastreiter and David Hershkovits, former editors at the SoHo Weekly News, with help from Lucy Sisman and Richard Weigand. Beginning as a monthly print magazine in the form of a black and white 16-page fold-out, it has since transformed into a quarterly print and digital magazine.[3]

Past cover models include Kim Kardashian, Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Prince, CL, and Jennifer Lopez.

In November 2014, Kim Kardashian was the cover star of the “Break the Internet” issue. Kardashian was interviewed by Paper contributor Amanda Fortini for the spread "No Filter: An Afternoon with Kim Kardashian". The photos for the issue were taken by Jean–Paul Goude.[8] The shoot was a re-creation of Goude's "Champagne Incident", a series of photographs from his 1982 book Jungle Fever.[9] The cover photo, as well as the rest, feature a fully nude Kardashian.

Since the story was published, it has gotten 34,147,700 unique page-views, which is more than double the number of page-views Paper normally receives annually.

It sounds like a girlie mag with pretensions.

#5 Freakin' CNN. That screeching sound must be Lynne Russell doing donuts in Ted Turner's Rascal. Thing 1 seems to be Bud Selig's grandkid at her summer job, Thing 2 a grizzled veteran of Mashable and such who's been toiling in teh trenches for even more months than her. "Trailblazing!" "Made history!" "Unprecedented!"
