The Magazine Death Pool

I came across this web site today. It is a very harsh reality on the state of journalism right now.

The site is called Magazine Death Pool and the author has had it going for a number of years now.

They document each magazine that has gone under as it, well, heads down to visit the Reaper as the writer calls himself.

Reading through the posts, it's like taking a walk through an actual graveyard. I remember a lot these magazines. The site is more like an archive of failed journalistic attempts.

It truly is a sad state affairs for journalism.
