Ads Continue to Encroach on Print Articles

The New York Times reports on a growing trend: ads on the front cover of magazines and newspapers:

“Journalists lament the trend as a potential sign that the boundaries between editorial and advertising content are weakening, and because the advertisements reduce the amount of prime space for news and feature articles. But front-page ads seem destined to stay, given the declines in advertising and circulation that newspapers have endured in the Internet age. Prominent ads command premium prices.”
