Honestly I don't think it's as much a commentary on the state of C++ as it is a commentary on the state of print magazines. PC Magazine and Computer Shopper are both at well under 100 pages, down from their great phone-book bulk of years past. I stopped renewing all of my subscriptions. The only computer magazines I still get are Game Developer (because it's free) and Dr. Dobb's Journal (because I've got another 3 years outstanding on it from other magazines that have similarly imploded).
IMHO, we're just out of the era of the computer magazine. Honestly, I don't read 'em anymore unless I'm in a place where a computer's just not convenient (long car trip, airplane, etc).
G'bye C/C++ User's Journal. You'll live on forever on my hard drive as a big pile of digital editions that I prefer to the paper version anyway because I can search 'em via Google Desktop Search.
