Time magazine is a shadow of its former self. Every issue is a "double issue," since no one
needs a "weekly news magazine" at this late date. Time's decline is also signaled by the fact that Republicans get less space or respect than China — because they routinely buy four pages of "news" in Time, a "China Daily" insert of state-run news. It can be hard to tell whether it's more or less propagandistic than the rest of the magazine.
