Not what it used to be
The writing, content, and cartoons have all gone downhill over the last decade. The New Yorker of 1999-2003 was essential reading -- engaging, thought-provoking, clever, wry. Today's New Yorker is tired. The cartoons, once clever and relevant, are now either obtuse or worn out (how many more "stressed out" montages by Roz Chast must I flip past?). For my money, I get broader and deeper political coverage in The Economist, more innovative writing and photos in The Paris Review, and sharper liberal politics/commentary in Harper's. If it weren't for the occasional serious news story (most often written by Seymour Hersh), I'd scrap my subscription.
