Oh. The current highest-ranking editor at the Economist is a female journalist named Zanny Minton Beddoes, whereas John Grimondn left the Economist years ago along with its former editor-in-chief John Micklethwait, who joined Bloomberg afterwards. John Micklethwait has written several critically acclaimed books with Adrian Wooldridge, who still writes for the Economist.
Typically, most journalists in America contend that the Economist, which is a liberal magazine, is the most admirable publication in terms of writing quality and coverage of global current events. That accounts for the reason why even some American publications have tried to emulate its writing style on the grounds that American readers just hanker after or go gaga over British English.
Most American cultural critics also reckon that the Economist is much better than Time magazine, not least because its readers are able to find more well-written articles featuring foreign nations.
My takeaway is Time magazine seems to have become a fashion magazine with glossy covers, by which I mean it doesn't feel like a renowned American weekly news magazine founded by the go-getting Henry Luce, who was determined to make Time magazine the best news magazine by hiring some highest-paid scribes when he launched Time Inc, which also owned Fortune magazine way back.
That's not the case now. Edward Felsenthal, the current editor- in -chief of Time magazine, simply demurs at the suggestion of hiring more respectable journalists from other publications, owing to his obsession with cost-cutting.
In my view, Time magazine is just forfeiting the opportunity to be a best-in-class publication when Edward Felsenthal and its owner Marc Benioff do that.
