Editor & Publisher is going from weekly to monthly

You need look no further than my job links pages to know why: the only reason anybody bought E&P was for the help-wanted ads, which are conspicuously available all sorts of places besides E&P, and much easier to find, and free to job seekers.

Of course there’s always that uncomfortable moment when your boss catches you reading it when you insist, “look, I read it for the articles.”

Such is the lot of the common newspaper slug: the prospect of a job somewhere else seems almost as sexy as pictures of naked people.
