Magazines also have to sell magazines, not that the subscription is the most important part of the business model, but if only two people buy it then advertisers wont advertise. So if the mag is a mouthpiece for the advertisers then it will quickly loose its readers and thus ultimately its advertising revenue. - Thats also a different maths.
is a comedy show that happens to have cars in it. When did you last see them actually review, seriously, an ordinary car?
They used to before Jeremy Clarkson took over the show. Not that I'm complaining, I prefer this incarnation hands-down.
