Truth in Advertising?
I've been annoyed by the above cover for several weeks, ever since my wife's copy of this December 28, 2011 - January 4, 2012 issue of Newsweek arrived promising "2011 Pictures of the Year" inside.
Why my annoyance? Well, I had serious doubts about that promise. The magazine simply didn't feel hefty enough for 2011 photos. I finally counted yesterday and discovered merely 130 'pictures' in the entire issue! And that's a liberal counting that includes advertisements and the two covers!
Talk about bait and switch!
How can a national -- nay, international -- magazine of such prominent eminence promise 2011 pictures but follow through on only 130?
I want my wife's money back!
Oddly, my wife doesn't seem the least bit upset. Indeed, she seems not to understand my point at all. I guess her English isn't quite perfect yet.
Anyway, I thought I might try to "go viral" with my complaint. Maybe that'll get something done about this . . .
