Publishers love Drupal. We see this everyday at Acquia. In fact, they make up one of our largest group of customers including the Slate Group, Thomson Reuters, and MotherJones.com. Publishers continue adopting and migrating existing sites because they can leverage thousands of modules, features, and monetization capabilities of Drupal to stay on top of the latest web trends and technologies. This is no surprise due to Drupal’s inherit social capabilities, custom content types, media and third party integration, and flexibility to customize or build on the CMS in any way you desire.
