Best of Mag News Around the Web: July 20-24
Every day, Masthead scours the Web for the best, most relevant publishing-related stories and posts links to these pieces in the Mag News Around the Web section. On Fridays, we round-up these stories in our main news section. Feel free to post links to things you have found interesting or useful in the comments section.

The report from 24/7 Wall Street that rates the top 20 U.S. magazine websites will probably be of interest to a lot of readers. It's worth a look, but the layout is kind of terrible and we must admit finding it hard to get through. Good stuff elsewhere, though, as the loveable Mr. Magazine continues to rally around the "power of print," Britain's National Union of Journalists slams the practice of unpaid internships, and the American Business Media survey reveals that layoffs in the U.S. b-to-b sector have been unsuprisingly brutal this year.
