New postal rates mean fewer print zines

Just like the headline says… Read this Phoenix article (Media monopolies kill) for more info but here’s the gist of it: “mailed editorial content will now be billed according to how far it travels, a method that favors huge publications that use centralized shippers and can take advantage of deep postal discounts.”  As the article notes, this will hurt publications that are across the political spectrum and also arts/music zines too.  You can thank the Postal Service (the govt agency, not the band) for this.
