Popular Photography Diss'es the KR
I stopped buying all the "mainstream" photo mags years ago primarily because their content was so obviously biased towards advertising. And also because they never really contained much useful information.
I now only buy Outdoor Photography Canada. It concentrates its content on articles that help us become better photographers. If you haven't tried it give it a look.
