The jews will buy it.

^...and when they do buy it that will be another reason not to subscribe to it.

I agree Ebony really needs to update their format and JET is waaay out of date.

Well seeing as though they never changed with the times and had the same tired ass format for years, although I did get my collectors copy of Obama. and putting that fool diddly squat on the cover on hastens its demise.

I can think of so many people that graced the cover of this mag more times than I cared to see, and some that never made it, but should have.

No wonder Warren Ballentine was on the radio feverishly trying to get his listeners to subscribe to Ebony and Jet.

TIME Mag owns Essence, when!!!!!!!!!!!

Bee Gee said...

Up for sale and notice the whore on the cover.

AnonMoron67 said...

I hope this cover didn't come with the sale price. How come they couldn't have a more "respectable" African American entertainer on there? Like.....

um....

gimme a minute.....








uh......












hold on.....










Megan Good?

Damn. I FAILed. Well, at least Megan Good is a good actress and does not participate in whoring for propaganda.

Bee Gee said...

Yeh but if you need to sell the mag, you have to let the ultimate whore grace the cover. That whore is definitely Piddy Combs.

Pretty Girl said...

Respectable actors could be Sheryl Lee Ralph and her AIDS benifits. Alicia Keys and the same. Relevant issues such as China buying up Africa.
Blacks in Europeon politics like Obama. Role of HBCU's educating Blacks when "white" colleges and universities are having more open policies due to hard times and the "Obama effect."They could cover all sorts of relevant issues and become the Time magazine mixed with entertainment for Black America. Instead their issues look dated and stale.
Essence still has good features but I sure miss Susan Taylor's musings in the back. What happened there?

This cover is about as TACKY and LAME as it was in "1953"

Thank you, I knew there are some respectable Black actors out there, I just couldn't think of them at the time.

By the way, the Ebony Fashion Fair has been canceled. The economy is hitting publications very hard. I doubt that Johnson Publications can remain in their current state in the future.

Mr. Johnson is surely turning over in his grave right about now. The Johnson Publishing Company is obviously having big problems selling ads -- I wonder if it will fold altogether.

The sale of Ebony is not surprising to me...it's been written for years at a fifth-grader's reading level. I subscribe to Jet because I thought it was the better of the two magazines, but now they are down to two issues a month at 50 percent of its "normal" size. Plus the fact they worried the hell out me to renew my subscription a month after I paid for a two-year renewal.

Wait a minute-Jet is now down to two issues a month. Boy they used to come every week. Wow pockets are truly hurting. So either you need to fix your buisness practices in this economy or drown.
