You've Got To Be Kidding Me, Part II

Last week, Parade magazine published perhaps the most asinine cover in the magazine's history. It was so asinine, I didn't write anything about it; I just let the cover speak for itself.

Now, for the second week in a row, Parade has outdone itself.





This is dated Jan. 6, 2008, 10 days after Bhutto's assassination. It was obviously printed before Dec. 27, 2007. But for such an egregious error, isn't a reprint in order?

Just awful.

I wonder how Marilyn vos Savant is going to explain this one.

i thought the same thing when i opened the paper and saw her picture. i was expecting a tribute/memoriam article but that was not the case.

The manufacturing guys over at Evolving Excellence have some comments on how long publication lead times created the Parade fiasco with the Bhutto article. Interesting about how the digital files are created in India and the publication outsourcing demands.
