Tribune Media Services in the US has announced the launch Opinionated, a weekly political magazine available only on the Amazon Kindle e-book.  Think about what this does for the supply chain – TMS publishes and immediately the issue is availaboe through Amazon for Kindle reader owners.  No print production costs, no distributor, no freight company, no retailer.  No wonder the price is US$0.49 an issue.
