WallyMart Attacks Small Presses

Wal-Mart is tossing more than 1,000 magazines from the racks in its stores, sending yet another shock wave through the battered publishing industry. Most of the magazines are small, and more than a few of the victims are titles that have long since stopped publishing. However, virtually no major publisher was spared. The move is likely to hurt new magazines, which take time to nurture and develop a following.

The company boys and gals of Sam Walmart are not big readers.  I wonder how many conservative magazines were cut?  Not to mention the attack on reading culture in the good ol' U.S. of A.
