    By now PEOPLE, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY have put out their YEAR END spec. ed. magazines with 2 weeks in the year left.

    How are these magazines to become referance issuses when if a big news event happens in the next 2 weeks? Already Dick Shapp has died, what if Bin Laden is caught or dead in the next 2 weeks that would be the ultimate news.

    My thoughts exactly. To go slighty off-topic, one of the things that bothers me about USA Today is that it's called a newspaper, yet isn't published on the weekends or holidays. Does news stop happening on those days?

    Same goes for some news shows when they do their year end recap.

    E! news just had their year end on Dec.25, T.V. Guide has dead celebs of 2001. Both missed out on the actor that died today still in 2001.

    I don't get it either. Would it be so hard for them to wait another two weeks to put out these things? [​IMG]

    What if Bob Hope or Ronald Reagan,Marlon Brando were to pass away in the next few days. It's like the media saying if it happens in the last 2 weeks of the year it's not major news.

    How about a YEAR END special "collectors" edition in the event that something would happen in the next two weeks. It's all about making money. More money for them. Yeah! [​IMG]

    The E! channel seems to be running the same Year End Show in place of E! News Daily the last few days.
