Anyone try to buy a copy of the Newsweek with the "Hit the Road Obama" cover? I stopped in my local B&N to try to get one. They didn't have any on the shelf and the clerk said they sold out within a few hours of getting them in. Same with a a local CVS and Walgreens.
This is probably the most they have sold in years.
we should just let them go out of business
I thought we already had...
Hope they get the message. ;-)
Exactly. Let them go out of business.
This was just a pathetic attempt to be relevant and far away from November.
A guy with some savvy...could buy the magazine and move it out of New York....to some place in Kansas. Reform the pitch and offer up a lean-Conservative opinions....and it’d likely be an easy item to market to Americans. I believe it’d move back into profitable status with six months and it’d prove a number of points.
Democrats bought them all up. I think they have discovered a way to profitability.
I wouldn’t put it past the dems to put it out to their coven members to buy every magazine to keep it from the public view.
It was just the “token anti Obama” edition of Newsweak. They usually have ONE...once a year.
For the next few months until November, it will be all “obama is the greatest” editions back to back.
I think that was called the Weekly Standard, although the lean-conservative part is often kind of iffy
The reason for the cover was to sell copies. It worked.
Even money says that the copy at your library has already been rendered missing.
If that’s the case I bet the DNC will reimburse the people that buy and destroy them. Time for another fundraising email begging for $3.
I refuse until which time they make Joy Behar the centerfold.
Holy heck batman. Yikes.
Mommy what’s a Library?
Darwin was wrong.
Well, Newsweek finally had a story that was factual and relevant for a change instead of their constant liberal pap. I wonder if they’ll realize that truth can sell news magazines or they’ll just go back to their yellow “journalism” and failure.
No, I will use library.
“...their coven members”.
As well as National Review. I didn’t renew years ago when it became too left leaning.

Let’s do it. I got $.50. We’re halfway there.
Oy vay! Almost as bad as Eunice Shriver.
If only one copy got into the hands of a normal American, that cover will be available world wide in high resolution by next week.
If they don't want to sell more copies of their moribund magazine, that's their choice.
LOLOL Is she wearing a studded dawg collar?
It’a not only Joy Behar without makeup, it’s Joy Behar
without makeup and sporting a leather slave collar.
An unbeatable one-two punch!
Well, she is pushin’ 70, but she stills looks like hell!
I’m calling this “Chick-fil-A Syndrome”. Tell folks the truth, and you get a big audience.
Nuke the Stalinist dog-collared bitch from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
I was thinking of that poor girl in “Absence of Malice” running around the neighborhood grabbing up all the newspapers with her picture on it.
WHY?????? She is a slightly younger version of Helen Thomas - and no, you don’t need to post her picture either! I just had dinner.
Know it well. When I was in high school, my older sister was in Playboy and my mother and I ran all over town buying them up.
Check your Dentists office - the Doctors office - Town Fair Tire....:>)
You'll never get it back from Barry Diller. Despite the half-clever cover move to enhance print sales, the Newsweak editorial board doesn't have a prayer of stopping Diller from going all-digital (hint: reducing staff by about 60%).
And you can do that right now without the Newsweak brand...
I’ve long said that the media needs a flyover country reality check and that includes even the most conservative talkers.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! MY EEEEEEYYYYYEEEEESSSSSS!
That’s getting into Helen Thomas territory!
You own a cheap as poop rag that is circling the toilet while tongueing Obama. Why not float a probe issue to see what happens when they expose the truth?
Newsweak would have to pay me to take their magazine. One good conservative article does not make up for the leftist garbage they’ve pushed for years.
That was my first thought as well.
Depending on the area you are in, in any State, it may come out on the news stand Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.
Is she wearing a dog collar?
Oh Dear God! How about a warning next time....
When it’s splattered all over Drudge, there’s no keeping it out of ‘public view.’
"Dead Tree" media is dying. If they can make it a digital issue for Kindle/smart phone users yea it will probably go but physical media is dying. The Columbus Dispatch is running commercials on TV showing their "New Look" which boils down to the paper being smaller. Subs are way down, ads are way down and "coupon-clippers" are moving to internet based coupons.
"Dead Tree" media is going to become a "nitch" item by the end of this decade.
