    I thought Newsweek was a member of the leftwing MSM. Maybe their falling subscriptions and ad revenues are starting to hurt in their pocketbook/bottomline and "Spread the Wealth" isn't such a great idea after all. :tongueout::rofl::supergrin:

    It looks as if the mainstream leftist news media may be turning on Barack Obama.

    They did the same thing to Jimmy Carter at this point in his presidency.

    They criticized Carter's handling of the economy mess and even
    made fun of his so called "misery index".

    Seems as if the winds are shifting, and the media trollops are blowing with it.

    Well, I'll be damned! :shocked:

    Never thought I'd see something like that happening.......:supergrin:

    I haven't read the article, but this front page is some of the best news I've gotten from the MSM lately.

    You know what they say about the pendulum.......I hope this means it has reached the end of it's swing, and is now headed in the other direction...........

    :nsb:

    "The article is written by Niall Ferguson, a British historian and economist that backed John McCain in 2008." I do not disagree with what he writes. But that he write such as he does is not surprise. It is a surprise that a typically left-wing publication would publish his opinion piece.

    last gasps of a dying liberal, seeking the help from conservatives.

    I think it's funny. Let 'em sink.

    Maybe a poll showed them that Republicans buy more magazines?

    It seems like the pendulum.

    I think it's just about money: they "print" just ahead of the swing in sentimental majority to sell magazines. With so many LCD screens these days, it's hard to sell magazines.

    I'm still waiting to hear the revelation that this is actually an Onion or Mad Magazine satire of Newsweek...

    Does kind of give me that "waiting for the other shoe to drop" feeling.

    Wow. I never thought I'd see the day when some of the liberal media turn on their own. There's hope in the air.

    It does kind of give you the feeling this might be some sort of trick.......and, it might be.

    Others here have said it's for the money........could be.

    Let's see how it plays out........I'm hoping it's a turning point for the MSM. If that's so, then once the rats start jumping ship, a whole sxxtload of rats are going to follow! These people aren't creative thinkers.......they are followers.......and, they take their cue from whatever they think might be the "doctrine" of the moment........and, I see some changes a-comin!......

    Why does everyone keep referring to Newsweek as the mainstream media?

    They are not, ya' know?

    Howdy Happyguy.......

    If you search Bing for Newsweek Liberal Bias, you'll find quite a few people who disagree with your assessment.......

    From what I gather, Newsweek might not be the rabid-liberal MSM that a few other outlets are, but certainly not favorable to conservative points of view.......

    Now that's a cover worth hanging on the wall.

    Think of all the doctor's waiting rooms these will be there to be read.
