A Reality Check for Reality Weekly

America has the shame of Guantanamo Bay, the ridiculousness of Apple fanaticism and the sadness of Lil B’s Twitter account, but we are not accepting Reality Weekly, and we should all be proud of that.

Official numbers aren’t yet available, but sources told WWD that sales for the magazine have been terrible. Apparently the debut issue sold only about 100,000 copies, despite 500,000 being available at newsstands. From there things got worse, as following issues sold even less.

AMI, Reality Weekly’s publisher, is disputing WWD’s report; they say that the numbers are higher. But FishbowlNY believes that the magazine has been a dud. We believe that for once, we all have chosen to ignore the ubiquitous reality TV celebrity world. We believe that people — despite their downfalls — are inherently good. And dammit, we believe in America.
