Trouble at Mother Jones?
The S.F. Chronicle is reporting that left leaning, investigative news magazine Mother Jones is hitting the financial skids. Even though the fodder for political exposes have grow tremendously over the past eight years, MJ, is finding its readership and circulation declining.
"A bimonthly newsmagazine -- how is that not an oxymoron in 2006?" said Jay Harris, publisher of MJ since 1991.
Mother Jones was one of the first magazines to launch a website back in 1993. Plans, however, to do away with what appears to be an increasingly costly and outdated print issue aren't seen to be in the immediate future.
