Reality Weekly to Go Tablet Only

Congratulations America, Reality Weekly is officially a flop. The New York Post reports that the magazine hasn’t been selling on newsstands, so its being yanked and turned into a tablet only publication due late this summer.

When Reality Weekly debuted in December of last year we were worried for our nation. Would you accept such a bad idea into your lives? After all, you already made Flo Rida a success. Then, after some time went by and there were mixed reports about its success, we started to feel hopeful. Now we feel energized to hear that the print version of the magazine has been denied.

David Pecker, AMI’s CEO, told the Post that he was confident the tablet version would work, because he only needed to guarantee 25,000 downloads to advertisers. But Pecker is underestimating you once again.

Rise up America! Stand up for your right to not read dumb things. We believe in you, dammit.
