Some 'Rachael Ray' Magazine Readers Feel Tricked
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
And our last word in business today is a story about what some people thought was a Thanksgiving rip-off. The November edition of the cooking magazine Every Day with Rachael Ray has been arriving at subscribers' homes with a little surprise inside. The New York Times notes that the oversized issue includes a letter saying that this edition counts as two. The publisher figured the magazine is so packed with recipes, that subscribers will be happy for two months, and the publisher can save on production and distribution costs.
Reader's Digest Association told The Times that some readers were not satisfied, and when they complained, their subscriptions were extended by one issue.
That's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.
