Folding paper: Radar drops off radar

The actually-quite-entertaining American pop culture magazine Radar gave up the ghost just before Christmas.

Rather than returning unused subscriptions to readers, the publishers have decided to force them to take an "alternative" title instead: Star, Men's Fitness, or Shape. Because, obviously, if your interest was in the revival of 90210 or the genesis of 'charts about entertainment', you'd really want a supermarket tabloid or gay porn for straight men.
