F+W Media (incl. Reader Digest) Files for Bankruptcy

After a failed attempt to move their focus from subscription publications to online retailing, F + W ended up in debt.  The profitable publications in their stable will be sold off, but many of the smaller ones might be coming to an end.

Some indication of why they can't effectively modernize can be seen on their website where their products are divided by gender where Men "explore, build and collect" while Women are "creatives and artists".  FFS.
