I just thought it was kinda funny that they explicitly mentioned the fact checking dept in the article. As in 'fuck facts, this is entertainment'. Which is... pretty much the way Discovery Channel, History Channel and pretty much every other science channel went in the end.

It's... popular science magazines in general have been in decline for ages already. I picked up a Scientific American from the 70s once. Holy shit. It had some long articles, technical, really hardcore stuff. No one puts that in a popular mag these days. It's just not profitable.

Since R Murdoch Esq. is all about profit I fully expect his shitty Midas touch to become evident in the quality of the magazine *and* the TV channel.
