My first experience reading Time was as a senior in high school in the 90s when they made us subscribe and read for CWP (Contemporary World Problems). It insulted our intelligence so much, and we were just dumb 17 year olds. God this rings true.

These stars are for the knock at Joe Klein who is consistently the third worst columnist alive.
Ok, I'll bite. 1 and 2?
1. Pat Buchanan
2. Ezra Klein (or Frank Rich). Take your pick.
Look, if that's what it's going to take for old people to learn about it...

The shittiness of popular magazines like Time is because an insultingly large percent of the population is functionally illiterate and cannot read past the sixth-grade level. That's also why most of the best-selling authors (Dean Koontz, Nora Roberts, Dan Brown, Michael Crichton) all write at a middle school level.
Yes, all my stars for the Joe Klein knock.
So long as they still produce the Person of the Year Coloring Book, I'm cool with Time for Squares.
I never read TIME, nor have I ever cared about it. I assumed it was a quality magazine, aimed at educated adults. Maybe I'll pick up a copy now; see how bad it really is.

Actual Florida panthers making terrifying comeback.
I haven't read Time since I got my braces off. Before then, probably, since around the summer before 8th grade my orthodontist started putting Wired in his waiting room.
