An interview in Columbia Journalism Review with Texas Monthly's new editor turned a lot of heads on Monday when he announced the magazine would move further in the direction of becoming a lifestyle magazine.

The new editor in chief, Tim Taliaferro, told CJR that while it would be "foolish" to just walk away from the long history of Texas Monthly, "lifestyle sells Texas Monthly better."

In other words, look for less politics from the magazine and more articles about food and travel. Taliaferro also told CJR that Texas Monthly would cut back on local political coverage because, "Texans don't care about politics."

Texas Monthly has long been accused  of political bias so it is possible that new leadership wants to abandon the political bent and relaunch Texas Monthly as a publication for all.
