Time‘s ‘T.G.I.Fridays’ Execution Misses One

TGIF_time.jpgHad Time magazine been publishing on paper last week, it would’ve had some cover decisions to make. Specifically, Gerald Ford‘s legacy or Saddam‘s pending execution? Instead, its “You” cover lingers on the newsstand while obsessed readers mock ads, like the one running in the resized Wall Street Journal today [at left] for its new Friday publishing schedule. (As Copyranter notes, annunciating the “G” puts a new, literal spin on the Church-State thing.)

Had Time been publishing on its “normal” Monday pressing, the magazine — like Newsweek — would’ve had the bizarre series of execution events to mull over.

Instead, we’d imagine the magazine’s readers anxiously awaiting Friday publication of their Time by reading Time.com. Which is kinda the point anyway.
