Canadian Magazine Industry News
21 August 2009,    
Best of Mag News Around the Web, Aug. 17-21
Welcome to another edition of our weekly round-up of the top news, service and features related to magazines that appeared elsewhere on the Internet this week.

The big news this week concerned the bankruptcy filing by the U.S. Reader's Digest Association. (Canadian business was "not affected," according to several reports.) Along with the news stories, you'll also find a couple of riffs on RD's influence by The Globe's John Ibbitson and The Toronto Star's David Olive. Also this week: CBC is launching a parenting site, Canadian Press is now offering editorial outsourcing and Gawker is actually making money.
