Washington Post Magazine Struggles With Advertising Relationship

The Washington Post Magazine’s Aug. 11 Education Issue came out a bit on the thin side. It contained a helpful cover story on how to emerge from college with a job. One of the lessons: Lots of students who pursue a degree in the sciences — which generally fetches a higher-paying job than the humanities — end up flaming out. To round out the special issue, the magazine’s editors had planned a couple of other education stories. One was on college drinking by reporter Jenna Johnson; another was an interview by reporter Nick Anderson with the outgoing College of William and Mary rector about whether Virginia’s public universities would get with the times on benefits for gay and lesbian couples.
Neither made it into the education issue.
