That's part of it. Bean counters have killed any real serious use of
photojournalism in most U.S. magazines. That, and the fact that they can
run color ads on almost any page, so they don't need to justify color pages
with lots of color pictures. (Check out the link Ted brought us from Dirck
Halstead's Digital Journalist for more on this subject.)
