Check out this week's cover. Caught in the act of claiming the Marxist street mobs are a "grassroots" movement.
Shame on you, Time. You never once referred to the TP as "the Silent Majority", only derogatory things like RNC operatives and whatnot
It’s the hydroponic kind of grass, grown in a sheltered environment with lots of money lavished on it.
Joe Klien. ROTFL! I didn’t know old Joe was still working.
Taking It To The streets (Nation)
A small protest on Wall Street has exploded into a nationwide phenomenon. Will populist demands for jobs, fair taxes and corporate oversight reshape the political landscape?
It sounds to me like TIME indulges in a little of that “corporate greed” themselves. Hmmmm. Hypocrites.
Of course they can’t show the marxist hippies or else it would ruin the faux meme.
During the second half of 2009 the magazine saw a 34.9% decline in news stand sales. During the first half of 2010 there was another decline of at least one third in Time magazine sales. In the second half of 2010 Time magazine newsstand sales declined by about 12% to just over 79 thousand copies per week.
TIME is a disgusting rag. But they still have a few subscribers so they get the last laugh.
so lets see here; the “racist” Tea Party movement nominated a bunch of “tea baggers” and swept national, state and local elections in 2010 to invoke the change they want...
the anti-semites on Wall Street, who shout “f’ America are demanding changes via screaming and yelling versus going through the political process....
and the criminal liberal media claims this is the silent majority?? lmao...
hey Joe Slime and the rest of the goobers at Time- lets see how many of these smelly hippy fleabaggers win elections or help candidates to victory over the next two Novembers...
I guess they couldn’t find any pictures the made the OWS crowd look good and went with a all black cover. I guess they know the majority of Americans aren’t interested in seeing homeless camps, er, protests filled with trash.
The cover has everything: a Romney puff piece (one candidate’s faith), Hollywood (Clooney), Gays (bullied kids) and Occupy Wall Street propaganda front-and-center.
79,000 a week. I don’t know how they stay in business. Probably all of those ads. Nobody sees them though.
What this will accomplish is to get these infant marxist their bonafides. In later years this will be part of their resume to get them accepted to professorships at prestigious universities or lucrative positions with big charitable foundations. In future years the password for entry into marxist circles will be "OWS".
In 5 years:
1. No more NYT
2. No more Time
3. No more Newsweak
Mark my words.
From 3.4 million in 2009
From your lips to God’s ears. Let’s hope that you are right...and the timeline is even shorter!
Newsweek had to sell their souls to the Daily Beast to even keep heads above water. The NYT is being kept alive by the Bertelsmann media group (who have a very interesting history); the NYT sold off their interest in BPI Communications to Bertelsmann, and they currently have a "partnership" with Der Spiegel.
In 5 years:

Good grief. George Clooney isn’t running for President? THAT’S a “news” story? No wonder Time magazine is in the toilet. I haven’t read Time in years. It was bad enough 20 years ago and has managed to sink even further into the abyss. And to think it actually was considered a “news” source at one time.
NEW YORKNovember 12, 2010Newsweek magazine and The Daily Beast, an operating company of IAC [NASDAQ: IACI], announced today they have agreed to merge their operations in a joint venture to be owned equally by Sidney Harman and IAC.
The new entity will be called The Newsweek Daily Beast Company. The directors of the joint venture will include Dr. Harman as Executive Chairman, IAC Chairman Barry Diller, and one director each to be appointed from either side.
Dr. Harman (husband of Cong. Jane Harman) who acquired Newsweek magazine from the Washington Post Co. over the summer, said: In an admittedly challenging time, this merger provides the ideal combination of established journalism authority and bright, bristling website savvy. I like partnering with Barry Diller and I look forward to building our company with Tina Brown and Stephen Colvin.”
Sidney Harman is Founder and Chairman Emeritus of Harman International, the worldwide audio manufacturer. He served as U.S Deputy Secretary of Commerce, founded the Program on Technology, Public Policy and Human Development at Harvard University and holds a Presidential Chair at the University of Southern California where he is Professor of Polymathy. He is a trustee of the California Institute of Technology. He is the founder of the Harman Center for the Arts and of Sidney Harman Hall in Washington, D.C.
Tina Brown, a founding partner and Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Beast, will be Editor-in-Chief of both Newsweek magazine and The Daily Beast. The President of The Daily Beast, Stephen Colvin, will serve as CEO of the
No pun intended, but at one "time", about fifty years ago, Time used to be pretty conservative. Back when the Luce's ran things, Time was considered the conservative purveyor or the news, and Newsweek the liberal. Now they're both about the same degree of liberal. Ditto for my hometown newspaper. Used to be conservative fifty years ago, now just another smalltown liberal rag.
That is true. Henry Luce was an ardent Republican who hated FDR and the New Deal. Time’s slide into a Democrat propaganda rag began within a few years of his death.
One popular myth is that news publications are declining because younger people use the Internet for that. That is true to a certain extent, but the real factor is that newspapers all have the same monotone liberal Democrat slant. Once upon a time, there were vast numbers of papers with a great diversity of opinion. Their numbers started dwindling for a number of reasons, one being the much higher cost of operating a newspaper business after WWII.
They did not really show any TP protesters either (they couldn’t find anything that made them look bad?)
There were no anti-Semitic protesters at the TP, and no reports of anyone being arrested. It’s also disgraceful for a Jewish man like Joe Klein to ignore the things that have been going on in the OWS rallies.
Years ago I had a TIME sales lady call me with reduced subscription rates. I told her I wouldn’t subscribe to her rag if there was a shortage of toilet paper. she wasn’t happy.
They can’t even spell their own name correctly. It is “SLIME” magazine, not “TIME” magazine. Joe Klein is a total asshole, among the worst writers around. And his mother dresses him funny.
I would bet that 78,000 of the 79,000 go to dentist & doctor offices where they get placed among 12-15 other magazines in the waiting rooms. Funny, the People magazine is always in someone else's hands but the Time, Newsweek and US News & World Report magazines are always just sitting there and never picked up or read.
Thank God people can go online and see the truth for themselves.
And many of them end up in the trash if I can get my hands on them...

4. No more GM either .................................. FRegards
I canceled my subscription to the rag in 1972, even back then it was obviously biased and way to liberal for me. Not having read or even picked up a used copy since then, from what I get here on Free Republic it has only gotten worse. Kind of like Nat. Geo., canceled them in 1975.
Husband of congress critter Jane Harman, all I need to know to NEVER purchase any of their products or propaganda.
Real shame about National Geographic. It’s almost 100% liberal propaganda nowadays. Overpopulation, global warming, deforestation, etc. in EVERY issue. I used to love their inserts of maps, the planets, things like that and I’d put them up in my room as posters.
Sacrificing one’s own existence for promoting an ideology is only noble when the cause is just. The problem with Time Magazine’s dwindling circulation and hemorrhaging revenue is that promoting progressive Big Government is evil. Moreover, Time doesn’t even have the integrity to admit they are a shill for Big Government, instead masquerading as an objective news source ... oh, and Joe “Sedition” Klein is a pure comedy gold.
“By the mid-1960s, Time Inc. was the largest and most prestigious magazine publisher in the world.”
How far the mighty have fallen. Time is a f#%!ing joke now. The article on OWS shows cherry-picked respectable-looking protesters (totally ignoring the communists and anti-Semites), but even these people are pretty much what you’d expect. They have a wine salesman, an art student, two social workers, an organic farmer, and a yoga teacher. All of whom would constitute the typical Democrat voter.
In a sane world Time magazine would be produced in someone’s basement - and sell about two copies (one to the publisher’s mother, the other to his best friend - both of whom would then throw it away).
However, in this world, Time is one of the biggest selling political magazines - the biggest political magazine seller in the United States, and sold all over Britain also.
Why is this? The ideological position of Time magazine is vile, and its articles are utterly dishonest. For example, this week’s edition has the editor go on about how the “religious right” “lost the argument” on abortion and school prayer - when he knows perfectly well that this was not a matter of free poltical debate, it was an exercise of arbitrary power by the Supreme Court with utter contept for both the opinion of the people and for the Constitution of the United States.
However, the “mainstream” media does not exist as some free floating bubble - actually it is a reflection of the education system (both schools and universities).
A lot of people are not really interested in what the teachers and academics say, some people are interested and reject at the time (arguing in class - or making a mental note that it is all propaganda, whilst saying and writing what the teacher wants them to), and a lot more people reject the collectivist ideology of the education system when they get out into the real world.
But some people (a lot of people) never do. They accept what the teachers and academics tell them (about history, politics, economics......) and carry on believeing it.
And often these people are NOT stupid - they may have very high IQs, they just accept an ideology when young and never fundementally question it (a failure of wisdom - not intelligence).
These are the people who buy Time magazine.
