Bumped Off

In the digital age, magazines are transitioning from hard copies to the online platform. Thus, readership and sales can be affected, as many readers are still not used to reading via electronic devices. However, the surviving magazines still in print have bragging rights and the prestige for continuing tradition amidst technological changes.

One Publication (OP) prides itself as an elite magazine, as only highly chosen ones are featured on the cover. To be on the cover of OP carries pride and an image that one is cut above the rest. Even the most famous celebrities do not land on the cover of OP by mere popularity. The cover personality must evoke the image of OP.

When Socialite Celebrity (SC) was contacted by OP to be on its cover, SC was excited. OP was the magazine to be on. SC started shopping for jewelry, accessories, and clothes that she can wear on the cover. After all, SC should only be seen in high-end fashion, and SC does have good fashion sense, by the way. Then, as the photoshoot date was nearing, OP cancelled on SC saying that an editorial decision was made and major changes had to happen. SC could not do anything nor could she even think that her money could buy her a slot on the cover. The chance to be relevant and be in the social circle slipped through the fingers of SC.

Allegedly, an Influential Personality (IP) has been getting annoyed at the antics of SC. When IP found out about the photoshoot, it took one call to make OP change its mind. Rumors have it that IP hinted at possibly telling advertisers not to place materials with OP if it continues with the plan. Not only will that be good for the said issue, but for succeeding ones as well. Ads are the lifeblood of publications and without placements, a magazine is as good as dead. Thus, the photoshoot was cancelled, as OP would not want to risk its future and besides, it also does not want to be part of the mess SC seems to be getting herself into.

  10. Editors will put on the cover whoever they think will sell the maganize, including ads. G should accept this fact. Do not blame K.
