Us jumped to soon

Us Weekly ran a story on Sarah Palin that repeated democrats talking points with no balance. That issue is due to be sent out today, but at least a few subscribers will not be waiting at the mailbox for its arrival.

“I’m hearing it’s 5,000, maybe more,” says one well-placed source in the industry. Another source claimed that as many as 10,000 readers have already cancelled their subscriptions.

sarah_palin What they did was follow the false stories of Sarah Palin not being properly vetted and the wishful thinking from the left that she would be forced to drop out before the end of the week.

“When Us went to print Monday night, it looked like the ticket was falling apart," says one magazine editor. “They went to print thinking Palin was dead in the water, and their mistake was thinking everyone who reads Us is a Democrat, when they’re not. Readers are loyal, but the base of a political party is more loyal. They don’t need to read the magazine when there’s so much press around it to know to be upset.”

And they forgot about the internet!
