    Some will find this article confirmation of their view that we stick to the traditional propaganda method https://www.theguardian.com/media/2017/dec/25/death-magazines-overplayed-titles-fight-back-facebook“It is too early to call the death of magazines,” said Adam Smith, a director at WPP-owned Group M.Alex Bilmes, the editor of Esquire, says "You need a beautiful physical object that offers respite from social media and constant digital churn – although we are of course available digitally too. I hear a lot of doom and gloom but I don’t feel it. There is no cause for complete panic.”

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/2018/mar/12/nme-vogue-death-print-magazines"The outlook for the UK magazine market is not good with the decline in sales. Sales of the top 100 actively purchased print titles in the UK – those that readers buy or subscribe to – fell by 42%  between 2010 and 2017. Since the start of the internet era in 2000, the decline is 55%…[for] magazines to survive they must build a brand beyond the core print publication…With issues such as fake news, we are seeing the pendulum swing back because of two things: trust and context…we are seeing readers leaning back towards trusted brands…"Food for thought… maybe to push circulation, we have Socialist Standard reader events…rather than Party meetings?…Would that resonate better with our potential audience.
