Best of Mag News Around the Web, July 13-17
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.

Lots of great pieces this week covering all sides of the business, including a round-up of five paid online magazine sites worth watching (do you think any of them are promising?), a fascinating interview with legendary writer Gay Talese, a profile of New Yorker illustrator Barry Blitt (the "Terrorist Obama" guy), and a 15-year-old's report on how his generation consumes media.

Interesting side note: We got most of these links from Twitter.
