The Onion: TIME Announces New Version of Magazine for Adults

TIME Announces New Version Of Magazine Aimed At Adults | The Onion - America's Finest News Source | Onion News Network

This is one of the funniest, most topical things I've seen for some time. It's about time someone went after the news media for dumbing things down to the point of absurdity.

Favorite quotes:

"Readers who grew up loving the magazine's bright, glossy photos, news by the numbers and simple to understand stories will now be able to graduate to Time Advanced. Instead of Time's breezy kid-friendly summaries, Advanced boasts a more mature tone aimed at an audience ready for grown-up news. While kids love Time for it's fun articles about litter and new kinds of dinosaurs, managing editor Kerry Larson explained that Time Advanced distinguishes itself with carefully researched, long-form journalism and a smaller, adult-sized font."

"New magazine to be geared towards readers already aware of where Pakistan is."

"Analysts expect similar move from competitor Newsweek, the news magazine for the illiterate."

So it'll basically be like The Onion but not funny?
