Yes, it’s favoritism, but I don’t think it’s a flattering picture. Too sinister looking.

That cover also equals the number of pages and subscribers Time has.

They’re in the tank for Obama. We know this. The public increasingly sees this by the MSM’s very excess. Let them continue to run Obama.

Guess Time didn’t get the message that polls show people feel there is too much media coverage of Obama. Hope it backfires on them all.

Bias?...what bias? I don't see any bias. How dare you accuse us of bias!

We are the media and we're smarter than you and we are above reproach.

It’s like Obama getting a million free campaign posters plastered along every checkout line in every supermarket in America. Time, People, Rolling Stone, and others do this for the Dems for every presidential election.

I use to believe that TIME was a fair, even-handed news magazine. But, in retrospect, I now feel that in my younger years, I was too too dumb to see their Leftist bias. Our society is truly submerged in a bath of liberial bias and the Leftist perspective.

Conservatives need to change perceptions at a much more fundamental level.

No surprise ... watch any major network evening news broadcast. Obama gets the lead in when they turn to political news, he's given 3 or 4 minutes, sometimes longer ... and McCain (the ‘Oh, by the way guy’) gets 20 seconds at the end of the segment, if he's lucky.

The question is: did they alter the picture to make him look older? I haven’t noticed all of those lines, etc in other pictures.

Someone who knows photoshop should compare this picture to earlier ones. I smell lying.

The media's fawning for Obama is sickening.

The voters will disappoint and anger the media this fall.
Voters will want a man in the white House to deal with the Russian bear on the prowl.
A gangly teenage boy with community organizing experience won't cut it.

What's wrong with the skin under his lower lip? Is that a plastic surgery breakdown? Looks like a weird area to show some aging??? And why does his nose look like it's bobbed?

Strange air brushing job?

Not really shocker Time shills for Obama.

The guy is evil. He’s the worst kind too. He’s not the obvious, in your face, direct ‘hey pal, let’s be bad together’ kind of evil people can immediately recognize and reject. He seems nice, smiles, listens to you, appears to be compassionate, but the guy believes in evil things - infanticide, marxist wealth redistribution, policies that force people to do things they never would do, he’s an egomaniac who can’t take any criticism and whines like a baby. Claims to care about us all so much when he tosses white grandma under the bus and we find out some of his siblings live in abject poverty while he and Michelle rake in hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. The guy who believes there is no problem we face that can’t be solved by more of your money. An expert that makes others compromise their views, while never compromising his. His marxist idols said to never compromise on core beliefs even if you lose at the moment.

This guy is evil. He’s not mean looking running around with drugs and guns killing people, which would garner him no citizens to support him; he puts on a suit, smiles, ‘listens’, gives solutions to all the horrible problems and cnflict in the country. But the solutions are evil. Kill your baby up to the point of delivery (and even after birth if that’s what was supposed to happen). Kids are burdens, don’t you know.

It’s the worst kind of evil. Evil that on the surface appears as good. Dupes a lot of people.

Reality is the more 'face time' Obama gets.....the worse he appears and comes off - The more people see Obama the more they dislike him......For awhile the MSM could package him well enough to offset this.....that is no longer the case.....

The more people see Obama 'live' it is even worse for him...

"It’s like Obama getting a million free campaign posters plastered along every checkout line..."

So McCain has seven houses, and Obama has seven Time magazine covers (this year). I wonder how much a front page ad on Time is worth?

Yes, people are getting sick of seeing his mug everywhere they look, yet still the MSM don't get it.

They'll think they're not exposing him enough, and the next thing we'll be looking at will be giant banners with his image peering out at us ala Mao.

When Clare Booth Luce was involved, Time Magazine was dumbed down but reasonably unbiased. Sure, they worshipped FDR, but I’m afraid that was to be expected. After she left, it has moved continually further to the left and has gotten more and more blatant about it.

At least in the old days there was some subtlety.
