Brilliantly played by NEWSWEEK to get those from both sides to buy the magazine.

1.5 million people still subscribe to Newsweek magazine? I'm having trouble believing it - do these people know they're subscribers?

"The MSM is giving up on the kenyan sooner than I anticipated."

Hardly. They're publishing this cover in mid-August for insurance. That way, when they start their heavily biased, full court press against Romney/Ryan throughout September and October, they'll be able to point back to this cover and say they've been "even-handed," with their criticism during this campaign cycle.

We used to get US News and World Report. When it went belly-up, we started receiving Newsweek, apparently because they bought the subscription list. I usually get it out of the mailbox and put it in the trash, but this issue I might take a look at.

Read the other day the main reason liberals are mad at him is because he is NOT LIBERAL ENOUGH!!! Not liberal enough???? Geeze, he is just left of Stalin now. How much further left can he go, except to divorce his fat wife and marry a man.

Not being familiar with Niall Ferguson, I Googled him (did not read full search btw)

Jul 30, 2012 ... Niall Ferguson is a professor of history at Harvard University. He is also a senior research fellow at Jesus College, Oxford University,

also NYT is already chiming in that “Newsweek must not have fact checkers”

so must be real.

Looks like this is the cover so they can continue to claim they’re a fair-and-balanced news source while publishing wall-to-wall Republican bashing for the next 10 weeks leading up to the election.

“Racist magazine.”

Great comment, but perhaps they’re interested in trying to sell some copy, rather than just make a statement into a more and more empty forest.

Yes, it is strange. Could it be that some in the media are finally realizing that they have no credibility or believability, and maybe they're trying to regain a shred of legitimacy?

Nah, I doubt it. There must be another reason.

Well, let’s put it this way. I have a birthday to shop for later on and actually went to some shops this afternoon. I have not done this for a Loooonnnnngggg time.

Everything, I mean EVERY LAST BLOODY THING that I picked up and thought might be worth considering was 3 to 4 TIMES what I remember things like this would be 3-4 years ago.

I found myself speeding as I was leaving the area. I realized I was fleeing the prices. No joke.

Now, I don’t know what I am going to do. I can’t buy those things anymore.

And then, there were the people with kids shopping for school. Clothes and shoes and school supplies and backpacks and OMG. You could drop $1K without batting an eye...per child. I heard several people that didn’t look like I’d expect—saying that they couldn’t afford to buy X Y Z. Couples were shopping with their children, not just moms.

Then there was the grocery store. I am beginning to get an inordinate fear of the produce area of a grocery store. Did you know that if you want to buy real, healthy food, you need to practically take out a 2nd mortgage?

Thank you, 0bama, Democrats and RINOs, for making us pay now, later and until Jesus comes.
