Remember that there are two reasons to run a magazine. One is to talk about the subject, and the other is to sell advertising space. Quite a few magazines seem to forget the first.
I would normally agree with you, but the people that run Outdoor Photographer (US) have made pretty clear their preference for digital. You can find any number of books on the shelves by Rob Sheppard and George Lepp. I wouldn't expect to see anything else from them (including biased articles expousing the superiority of digital over film - which is on their web site currently).
