Seattle’s Smaller Weekly Watch
For the week of September 15-21, 2005:
The Stranger: 124 pages.
Seattle Weekly: 140 pages.
Score one for Seattle Weekly? Not so fast…
The Weekly has a 16 page insert from from Washington State University/King County Extensiona paid insert (thanks Ron Sims!)that they credit toward their total page count, which is just a touch dishonest. When the Stranger has an advertising insert/pullout, we don’t include those pages in our total page count. We don’t, as the Weekly does this week, skip from page 62 to 79 in the middle of the paper. It’s irregular and it demonstrates the Weekly’s insecurity about their size.
An honest page count for this week’s “special” issue of SW puts it at the same size of this week’s regular issue of the Stranger, or 124 pages.
