Spy magazine debuts
Spy magazine lasted only 12 years, but left an enormous legacy. From a 2006 article in Metropolis: "Spy's ideas are indeed everywhere. Its icons of cutout heads and choice phrases to assist in skewering celebrities (Donald Trump was presciently the 'short-fingered vulgarian') have been aped in everything from news magazines to late-night talk shows. Its practice of dredging up revealing documents to incriminate or embarrass public figures (including a nude shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger and an image of his father's Nazi party membership card) has found a powerful successor in the investigative Web site The Smoking Gun."
