Cost? (Shoulder shrug????) In the overhaul of its Web site, TNR neglected to update links to PDFs of its media kit. The url www.newrepublic.com/advertise leads to “Page Not Found.” Per their old, 2012 media kit, which TNR just sent, the public cost of a full-page color ad starts out at $8,500 and can be as much as $9,960, though that is a misleading price because publishers often offer rebates and discounts to clients. Let’s pretend for a second, however, that Princeton University Press paid nearly $10K for their ad and do the math. Essentially, ad pages in one issue helped pay for, hypothetically, one senior editor and Michael Kinsley’s per diem.
