Birthday Boy Tom Cruise Doing Better Than Newsweek

The newsweekly is like Tom Cruise in Interview with the Vampire, it may still be alive, but it is not looking very good. At least that is what users of the digital edition are telling the publisher.

Well done. But what of the more conventional coverage today of an A-lister who belies the fact that he is on the Edge of Early Bird Specials?

On this day, the only mild media surprise is that Scientology watcher Tony Ortega did not pen another open letter to the star. And love Cruise or hate Cruise, Edge of Tomorrow is at this point the best Hollywood summer popcorn movie alongside X-Men.
