Mary Lucia reveals why Rolling Stone, which has brought down a general, had become irrelevant.
Since Rolling Stone did what the Taliban could not do, many people have suggested that the magazine is “relevant again.” News Cut was not aware that it had become irrelevant, especially since Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi provides some of the most interesting political coverage in the country.
Irrelevant? To understand the assertion, News Cut turned to Senior Rolling Stone correspondent Mary Lucia of the Current. And we got the whole football — soccer, whatever — thing figured out today, too.
Bob Collins has been with Minnesota Public Radio since 1992, emigrating to Minnesota from Massachusetts. He was senior editor of news in the ’90s, ran MPR’s political unit, created the MPR News regional website, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started the two most popular blogs in the history of MPR and every day laments that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
