And The Most Befuddling Launch of an Online Magazine Award Goes To …

July 9, 2010

Inpsire … al Qa’eda’s new English-language PDF magazine.  The debut issue’s cover allegedly showcases the photograph of a silhuouetted man with a slung machine gun, its composition superimposed by this front-and-center line: “Make a Bomb In The Kitchen Of Your Mom.”

Even as discombobulating as having a Contact Us page may be, I wouldn’t expect much specifity in the way of bylines or mastheads.

Not surprisingly, the pub has had a shaky and rickety launch.  I’d bet it’s little to do with the how the economic recession has impacted the print magazine industry, and more to do with American people’s notorious love of their mothers and kitchen-safety standards.
