Once again a new issue of TNR will hit the media waves.

    It appears TNR has become an AMC advertisers heaven. The front and back page is nothing more than an advertisement for AMC's. I read this magazine for content, not to be sold on AMC's. Put meat on the front page, not fluff.

    Jim - Thank you for noticing! I knew we would take some flack on this. There are a couple of things I would like to say, so please bear with me on this. I have addressed this in the past.

    First, please read my founders letter from the Dec 2009 issue. It discusses why we sell the front cover: http://www.thenichereport.com/note_from_the_founder_decjan_issue.html

    Second, please see link to our big announcement about going to a paid subscription: http://p0.vresp.com/eAjGoK

    One of the big reasons we plan on taking this to a "paid subscription" is to control what goes on our front cover (Sending an over 3.5 ounce magazine via first class mail for nearly 20,000 subscribers is not cheap - please do the math and tell me what you come up with, because I promise you it will be more).

    The big question is - Are YOU willing to pay the subscription fee? The fee, as you can see, will be extremely nominal (in fact, for current subscribers, it breaks down to $1.67 per issue).



Is TILA-RESPA a good or bad thing long term?
