Newsweek: Hey, Whities, You’re Old, You’re White And You’re Finished

Your days are done, white man. In its November issue, Newsweek and writer David Frum want you GOP whities to know that you’re old, you’re white, and you’re finished.

Not only does Newsweek want white Republicans to know their salad days are over (and that they are racist, no doubt), but the aging magazine has done so with a cover illustration that portrays Obama wearing the uniform tunic of a Revolutionary War soldier — maybe even with allusions to founding father and first general of the armies George Washington.

You can add this Obama-as-George Washington image to the many other Old Media claims that Obama is somehow just like some of our most revered Presidents. We’ve been told he’s somehow “just like” Lincoln, John Kennedy, and Franklin Roosevelt. Of course, he’s closer to Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter, but, well, you know.

Andrew Sullivan: Racist Romney Voters Like ‘The Old Confederacy’

-By Warner Todd Huston

On the Sunday, October 28 edition of ABC’s This Week, Andrew Sullivan of The Daily Beast claimed that Obama might lose this election because the whole south is filled with racists that are somehow just like the Old Confederacy. As George Will noted, according to Sullivan all the whites that were not racist in 2008 suddenly are racist in 2012.

In a discussion of the “racial gap” in this year’s election, Sullivan declared all southerners to be racists and are sliding back into the civil war. “If Virginia and Florida go back to the Republicans, it’s the Confederacy, entirely. You put the map of the civil war over this electoral map you got the civil war,” he said.

George Will correctly dismissed Sullivan’s ranting as poppycock. Will noted that Democrats have been steadily losing the white vote since 1964 and that it has nothing to do with Barack Obama being black.

Newsweek’s Obama Dissing Issue Biggest Seller All Year!

September 4, 2012 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Government, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Newsweek, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

You may recall the recent Newsweek cover that featured a photo of President Obama, mouth agape, coat over his shoulder, appearing above the words “Hit The Road, Barack.” The lefty Old Media establishment just hated that issue. The magazine buying pubic, on the other hand, seems to have lapped it up as the issue apparently has become one of Newsweek’s best sellers.

Magazine Information Network, an organization that tracks national magazine sales, is reporting that early numbers show that Newsweek’s August 27 issue featuring the Obama dissing, “may have just knocked one out of the park on newsstand sales.”

The early read on sales suggests the issue could double Newsweek’s newsstand average, MagNet said. It’s also on track to land among the title’s top three newsstand sellers since 2010, according to MagNet data.

Apparently even iPad sales were through the roof coming in a 4.3 times higher than average.

When asked about their good fortune, Newsweek had no comment.

Newsweek’s Asparagus Fail, Recycling Tired Cover Illustrations

August 13, 2012 | Filed Under Journalism, Media, Media Bias, Newsweek, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

In 2010, stereo equipment magnate Sidney Harmon bought Newsweek for $1. This year his surviving family members ended their support for the magazine. It may have been a good decision since Newsweek can’t even seem to keep its own cover image fresh and original as is witness with an August cover sporting an image and theme that has been used several times before on other magazines.

The August issue of Newsweek features the cover story “101 Best Places to Eat in the World,” and is illustrated with a close up of a pretty lady, head tilted back, and with asparagus spears dangling seductively toward her red, parted lips.

If that seems familiar, you may have caught a 2008 cover of Observer Food Monthly in Great Britain that featured the exact same image. Not just a similar one, but the exact same stock photo.

HuffPo Editorial Director Howard Fineman: Romney Supporters ‘Xenophobic’ and ‘Nativist’

July 29, 2012 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Huffington Post, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Mitt Romney, Newsweek, Race, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On a July 23 appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, Huffington Post Editorial Director and former Newsweek Editor Howard Fineman accused Mitt Romney of pandering to a “xenophobic” Republican Party, a racist party, he said, that is “afraid of the world.”

During a discussion of Michele Bachmann’s questions about Hillary Clinton aid Huma Abedin’s possible familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, host Chris Matthews asked the left-wing HuffPo editor why Mitt Romney doesn’t “have the guts” to stand up to those in his own party. In reply, Fineman slammed Romney and the “nativist” GOP.

Big Investor Bailing From Support of Newsweek Daily Beast

July 26, 2012 | Filed Under Business, Journalism, Media, Media Bias, Newsweek, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

You may recall the big publishing story of 2010 when stereo equipment magnate Sidney Harman bought financially troubled Newsweek Magazine for $1 in the hopes of revitalizing the venerable old publication into the “thought leader” it once was. Now, since Mr. Harman’s death, his family seems poised to bail on the old man’s publishing charity case and the left-leaning Daily Beast website it is coupled with.

Since Sydney Harman bought Newsweek and took controlling interests in the Daily Beast, neither has become a profitable venture. This has caused the Harman family to re-think their position.

Now, the Harman family has announced that it is pulling back and has stopped investing in the Newsweek Daily Beast joint venture with Barry Diller’s InterActiveCorp (IAC).

Obama As ‘First Gay President,’ Shows Truth Means Nothing to Liberals

May 13, 2012 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Ethics, Gay Marriage, Gays, Journalism, Liberals, Media, Media Bias, Newsweek, Warner Todd Huston | 2 Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

Symbolism is far, far more important to the childish, silly left in America than truth. Why do I say that? The newest Newsweek cover explains why as its May 21 cover proclaims that Barack Obama is “the first gay president.”

This, of course, is in reference to Obama’s announcement of his non-support of gay marriage made last week. It was a non-supporting announcement because really all he did was claim some personal belief in gay marriage but did not follow that up with any actual policy proposals meaning that regardless of how he claims he now feels, itself a departure of his many years of saying the opposite, nothing will change on the matter of gay marriage. It was pandering to his gay donors and little else.

Yet, now we have a gay columnist, the hack blogger Andrew Sullivan, claiming that Obama is “the first gay president.”

But he isn’t.

Newsweek: White House Intimidation of NBC ‘Reprehensible’

July 7, 2011 | Filed Under Barack Obama, Censorship, Democrats/Leftists, Government, Journalism, Media, Media Bias, MSNBC, Newsweek, President, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Old Media is still acting shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, that the Obama administration treats them like a redheaded stepchild. Newsweek’s The Daily Beast, for instance, is incredulous at the “reprehensible” actions of the Obama White House for having the temerity to call NBC to scold the cabler over Mark Halperin’s “dick” comment.

You’ll all certainly recall the incident in question. Back on June 30, MSNBC news analyst Mark Halperin unleashed the “d” word on President Obama in an appearance on the cable station’s Morning Joe talk show. Halperin was asked how he thought Obama did in his June 29 press conference and in reply Halperin joked that Obama had been “a dick.”

From there Halperin’s world went topsy turvy to the point where everyone was apologizing on the set of the TV show and only hours later MSNBC was suspending its analyst “indefinitely.”

But one other little part of this story is what brought the ire of Newsweek’s Douglas Schoen and Judith Miller and for good reason, too. The White House called NBC to complain about Halperin’s language. How is it possible, Newsweek wondered, that the White House was so bold as to attempt to intimidate NBC? Worse, why did NBC buckle under that pressure?

Newsweek: Americans are Stupid Because We Don’t Spend Enough on Education?

March 22, 2011 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Children, Constitution, Democrats/Leftists, Education, Government, Liberals, Newsweek, PCism, Society/Culture, States Rights, Warner Todd Huston, Western Civilization | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Newsweek has published another one of those aren’t-Americans-Stupid articles wherein we find that few Americans know anything about either our history or our political system. People have no idea who our current vice president is, they don’t know when the Declaration of Independence was adopted, and they haven’t a clue who takes the office of president if the prez and the VP are incapacitated. But what is more interesting in Newsweek’s article is the reason the news magazine thinks that we are so stupid. Absurdly Newsweek thinks it’s because government doesn’t spend enough money on education.

First of all, I have to agree that Americans are as ignorant as can be on our history and our system o government. You can see it just about everywhere. In fact, you can see it in voting patterns. Illinois is a perfect example. The corruption has been endemic in the Democrat Party in Illinois for decades, yet voters repeatedly pull that donkey lever. It is clear they are ignorant of why things are so bad in the Land of Lincoln and they send the same crooks back to the state house over and over again.

Certainly it is impossible to dispute Newsweek’s central claim that Americans display an appallingly high level of civic ignorance. But Newsweek doesn’t just report its findings, it goes on to opine on just why we as a nation are so ignorant of our civics and history.

Newsweek thinks it’s because we don’t spend enough money on education: (my bold)
