Feigning normality since 1973

Newsweek covers

Filed in: Misc.

Red Star Robot pointed out that Newsweek's website displays four international edition covers down the left hand side (you can see them at right - it's rearranged them to make them easier to post, but the image is linked to an unedited screen shot).

While the three non-US editions all show a fellow holding a rocket launcher with the headline "LOSING AFGHANISTAN", the US version shows a women and her three children with the headline "My life in pictures". Interesting difference in focus there...

that is the most blatant example of federal censorship i've personally ever seen.

why do they tolerate this sort of thing.
