Have they been doing badly?

There were people handing them out on the street.

That's the route that the Village Voice went.

I think it's free only one day a week. I don't know anyone who still buys magazines.

Why anyone ever paid for that piece of crap is a mystery to me.

All print media is doing badly because of the internet. They hope to give out gazillions of free copies, thereby boost their circulation and ad revenue.

The only times that I have looked at that magazine is when I got it for free.

I'll beg to differ. It is most certainly not crap. It's not a great magazine, but it's certainly deserves to survive more than, say Us or Lucky.

Of course they are handing it out for free. Most magazines now are filled with mostly advertisements.

I've seen them on 42nd Street, on the sidewalk.
