Win McCormack is a great man.
I don't say that because I knew him while he lived in Oregon - I say that because it happens to be true.
"I remember a time when Oregon Magazine was about Oregon – it didn’t
publish the drivel I just read from Matt Barber, or apologetics for
Zionist war crimes.
What happened to you????"
I received the following response:
"The period to which you refer, in calendar terms, would be during the era of Win McCormack, who sold the magazine to two guys down in Roseburg, then left the state. (I was a contributing editor to both of those incarnations.) The guys in Roseburg couldn't make a go of it and let the name drop. McCormack currently produces Mother Jones Magazine on the East Coast. You should prefer that one.All's I can say is that Mr. Leonard has a curious relationship with the 'truth'.
The publisher of a magazine shapes his publication in one of two ways*:*
(1) To meet a market need regardless of whether or not he believes the product is providing the truth, and (2) to present the truth, regardless of the preferences of the potential audience.
I chose the latter approach because I don't care if I make a living from the magazine if I have to lie to do it.
Good luck to you,
I don't wish him well, good luck, or anything else. He's part of the problem with America nowadays - part of the extremist element who will do damn near anything to get their point across, even if they have to make others suffer for it.
I wish Win McCormack would come back to Oregon.
I mourn the passing of good writing.
I mourn the passing of common sense.
