Newsweek - Fluff for Us, Bad News for Them
As noted elsewhere on the Internet, the MSNBC website has a display of current Newsweek covers as they vary around the world. For example Latin America, Asia, and Europe all got the cover with "Losing Afghanistan". Here in America we got the feel-good story of a famous photographer. It makes perfect sense. No need for the corporate media to rile up the voters with some hard news - especially when their government masters are facing an election in a few weeks.
