Amidst the hubbub over the sorta-surprise shuttering of Jane Magazine, another group of hard-working, celebrity-and-relationship minded magazine editors are being overlooked: Those at Cocktail, the German-owned Bauer Publications weekly ladymag set to launch later this year and unceremoniously killed off yesterday just a few hours after the news about Jane hit. (Full disclosure: This writer was approached for a position at Cocktail way back when. Like, before it was named 'Cocktail'). A few minutes ago, we spoke to two of them, one who had been at the magazine for just a week (the other "lasted" only a day). And what did they tell us? In true publishing-company fashion editorial staffers didn't know a damn thing until the bitter end.
