Let's reward good behavior. Newsweek is apparently desperate to survive. We plan on buying this issue off the shelf. Might they get the message????
They are reading the Tea leaves and don ‘t want to be on the losing side...
Too late for Newsweak. I refuse to buy an issue from them.
That was my first thought as well. Let’s get more on board....you know...money talks....
I have no idea what you’re talking about, but don’t be fooled. Those assclowns at Newsweak and every other Democrat “mainstream” newsroom will do everything in their power to get their communist p.o.s. re-elected.
That would be a huge mistake.
True that...but think of the message that would be sent if they sold out of this issue buy mid week. One week sales is not going to save them, but other publications might get the message. We’ve had it with their message. Besides, this may give free license for others to `come out of the closet’......
I haven’t read the article, but I believe they start out with “Obama has not kept his promises’, or some such.
Not good to start out with a lie.
Obama HAS kept his promises, that’s why we’re in such trouble.
Remember how he promised to ‘fundamentally change how America works’?
Better they go broke.
I agree with you, however, I feel like this is a crack in the dam. These days the image is eveything. Most people will never read the article, but they will see the cover and it ain’t good for the `One’....If we don’t hear about this on the TV talk shows and radio, then I will be proven wrong. Call me what you want, but for now, I’m encouraged.
The article was written by a McCain advisor. Next month will be how our maximum leader has saved the world and needs to be re-elected. This article will be long forgotten in a month or so.
Oh, I’m encouraged too, but we shouldn’t reward our sworn enemies.
Then again, it might be handy to give the election to the pubbies and let the economy collapse on their watch. Then, enter Hillary, stage left in 2016.
Newsweek is a piece of shit.
No. Let them die. Why? No.
“The article was written by a McCain advisor.”
Who cares? They run with it. why?
“Next month will be how our maximum leader has saved the world and needs to be re-elected.”
And your point is? If their sales go thru the roof this month and collapse the next when they run that which you suggest, well then the message will have been sent. `Get with the American People or go bankrupt.’
I’ll buy one just to encourage them to publish more stories like it.
I’m sorry, but.... I’m missing something here. Is there a link to this article. I’m totally in the dark here.
I did a Google Search to see the cover and read the story. DAMN.... this can’t help Prez dude. I’m shocked that Newsweek is even running the story much less making it a “Cover” story. UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Maybe I’ll read the article in 4-5 years in the doctor’s waiting room.
I will give them no money, they won’t change in gratitude to us and have only done harm for years.
“Im sorry, but.... Im missing something here. Is there a link to this article. Im totally in the dark here.”
It’s on Drudge as well.....
Probably a last-ditch, panicked effort to try and save their magazine from going online only. I believe there was an article out there saying they had a plan in place to go online only in September because they were losing so much money on the print edition.
“Ill buy one just to encourage them to publish more stories like it.”
Thank you. That is the point I’ve been trying to make. Some here would turn away a loved one even after they had turned from their wicked ways. Out of spite I guess.......
Is that for real?
Is there another article that is so poisonous that they will put this article on the cover so as to get more people to read something that would serve their diabolical purposes? They could put out just a single article criticizing Obama, among hundred that lift him up, if they want to bait people into read something even more rotten to the core inside the mag. Watch for the old bait and switch tactic. I haven’t looked at the mag, but this scenario is possible with the dirty left. What are the other articles in the issue about, anything major?
Heck, I don’t plan on reading it. I want just want to tear the cover off and frame it.
If I see it - I’ll buy it... might as well send a message...
I don’t know what is in the rest of the magazine, but this article is a major point-by-point take-down of Obama’s failed record. It is a good read. http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/08/19/niall-ferguson-on-why-barack-obama-needs-to-go.html
I don't much care about 2016.....what I DO care about is that Bader/Ginsburg is in her 80's and the other lefties on the court are up there also.
THIS is what I care about.....Supreme Court dominance.
Proceed with extreme caution; this might end up for you as if you nuzzled up to Rachel Maddow and offered to throw her a bone.
Let them die. I for one will never patronize any liberal establishment that I can avoid. They began the war, let’s end them.
In cycling only one guy on the team gets to cross the finish line first. The sprinter. The others form a lead out and burn themselves to the ground one after the other to get the sprinter as far forward as possible to take the win.
Like the lead out riders, the leftist media totally sacrafice their enterprises to push their man over the top.
I don’t know what this article signifies but it is NOT, as you wisely note, an attempt to reform their ways and save their enterprise.
LOL - I’ll be careful...
Let them die a horrible death. Put them in unemployment lines, like the rest of us. Let them eat Ramen Noodles.
I keep seeing their “We’re All Socialists, Now” cover, after Bath-House Barry’s installation.
Socialists,liberals and progressives should NOT benefit from the capitalism they HATE so vehemently.
No. Don’t buy it, but quote the article extensively in response to liberals on various news sites. For example, even Newsweek disagrees with you: “.....”
This would accomplish two things. First, it give you ammunition from someone ordinarily on their side. This is often very effective. Think of the times when they do the same, stating that a Republican supports a liberal bill.
Second, by making liberals aware of Newsweek’s apostasy, you make it less likely that they will buy the rag next week or the week after that (or subscribe to the online edition), thereby accelerating its downward slide into oblivion, where it deserves to go.
But if you do come up with any copies of the issue, leave them in waiting rooms, face up, so that others see them. Don’t give them a single dime though; you’ll just be feeding the dog that bit you, and will bite you again at the first chance. Mark my words, they are going to get a ton of cancellations this week from their 99% liberal subscribers. Anyone who is not a confirmed liberal stopped reading Newsweek years ago.
Oh yeah, I’ll buy that issue.
But, wait, will it cost more than $1.00?
“DAMN.... this cant help Prez dude.”
No, no it can’t. Hey, if they ran it inside, OK, maybe. But that cover?
As others have pointed out, many (most?) folks only see the cover. They never read this article or any other article.
It is astonishing that Newsweek would have this as their cover.
Rats jumping off the ship?
Maybe we should donate to al Qaeda to reward them for not bombing anybody this week.
I smell a rat.
Just watch. Once we get closer to the election, Newsweak will suddenly discover that King Barry isn’t so bad after all, and they will publish issue after brimming with worshipful praise for His Majesty.
Sorry, can't follow your analogy here. To whom was Newsweek ever a "loved one" ?? Besides, the bias in our disgraceful media has been going on since 1964 (maybe even before) and it's not going to correct itself in one week. Market forces have already indicated Newsweek's demise. The highly paid big shots at Newsweek only seem to be just now looking at the bottom line on their balance sheet.
