"I think newspaper editors need to think of their Page 1 as like a [magazine] cover. It's there to draw the reader into the pages of the newspaper. I also think it's important to not only have local news. I mean, when you're traveling, and if you can only get a local paper, you really feel like, "What's going on in the world?" You're hungry for the New York Times or USA Today." said Bonnie Fuller, the editorial chief of American Media Inc., the publisher of magazines and tabloids including Star, Men's Fitness, Shape and National Enquirer. He added magazines had to reach readers "both visually and textually."
