Four Women Editors and Their Journey Back to Print

WWD has a post today about four women editors – Pilar Guzman (pictured), Tina Brown, Brandon Holley, and Deborah Needleman – and their journey from print to the web, then back to print again.

It’s a story that deserves to be told. After all, these are four powerful, talented women who are shaping the magazine industry with their decisions.

The content of the post is all fine and dandy; the headline, however, is not. It irks FishbowlNY a bit. And when we’re bothered, we bother you with the details. As Janet once said, that’s the way love goes.

The post is titled “Is Print in Vogue Again?” and like all headlines that ask a question, the answer is nowhere to be found in the piece. We do learn that the women all seem to have come back to print for the money, but not if print is “cool,” as the headline suggests.

If you’re going to ask a question, be able to answer it. That’s all we want.

For example:
“Does FishbowlNY hate headlines that contain questions?”

“Yes.”
