US Weekly in a Nutshell: One-Third Kardashian

Bobby Finger points it this afternoon via The Hairpin at a gallery of US Weekly’s 2013 magazine covers. And what a wonderful, acerbic finger it is.

At one point in his summary, Finger combines all 52 main cover headlines into one glorious, what-if article lede paragraph. The fact that the paragraph sort of still makes sense is arguably as damning an inculcation of today’s gossip media as anything coming down the year-end review pike.

Finger also makes use of the trusty one-two-THREE joke construction with his accompanying tabulations and graphs. After some head-spinning US Weekly cover crunching, he sums it up USA TODAY old-school style:
