How irrelevant has the media become?

Vanity Fair is probably the strongest of the magazines left in terms of having A-list people hamming it up on their covers, but not even all the media coverage over Tina Brown's book has given it any sales lift. og-logo-vf

No one is buying the book. It almost seems like more people in the news media wrote about it than actually went out and bought a copy.

This is an unmitigated disaster for the press. I almost did not even mention this debacle, but it goes to show how irrelevant the press has become to modern life.

Tina Brown had to struggle in a sexist profession her entire adult life. She was a transforming figure in the magazine industry...and now, nothing.

She cannot bring a corpse back to life, even with her wit and shrewdness.
