Far be it for me to pretend to know the inner workings of Maclean Hunter, but published information appears to provide a different perspective of the fortunes of Chatelaine and Maclean’s than the anonymous media insider that you quote (‘Rumors swirl over MH print assets) in the March 21 issue.

Chatelaine reportedly sold more pages in 1993 than the previous years and revenues were up in an otherwise dismal market.

Although Maclean’s sold somewhat fewer pages in 1993 than in the previous years, other comparable publications saw a much more dramatic decline.
