Media Chooses Fluff Over Substance
Gee, what is wrong with this picture.
Check out the sidebar at Newsweek. Hat tips to Attaturk.
Update: I crossposted this entry at Loaded Mouth. Taz posted this in the comments.
Looking at this graphic causes one question to pop into my mind: If Newsweek thought that the same cover they had selling for their international editions would sell better on the American market than the cover they opted to use instead, then wouldn't they have run with the Afghanistan cover on all their editions?
If anything, I think this speaks to the shallowness of American consumers.
