'Paging Dr. Obama' Makes It Seven Time Mag Covers Since Election for Obama
Newsbusters ^ | 7/31/09 | Brent Baker

Posted on 07/31/2009 9:51:58 AM PDT by Nachum

Time magazine's August 10 edition with President Barack Obama on the cover (“Paging Dr. Obama”) trying to heal the nation in a photo illustration as a physician, wearing a white smock with a stethoscope around his neck, brings to seven the number of issues the magazine's cover has featured Obama just since November's election -- make that eight for the First Family if you add in June 1's genuflecting “The Meaning of Michelle.” Amongst the seven of President Obama: “Person of the Year” and Obama as FDR.

Stories about the oppressed and suffering and the white knight Obama (and government) coming to the rescue is all Time and the others know.

The only NEGATIVE gub’ment stories are about mean and greedy Republicans.

Time and others believe in social utopianism and ignore the fact that it always, always kills the prosperity goose.

Obama is the new Pol Pot. Except that people will forced to feed and take of inner city poor people. At gunpoint.

How many did Bush get in 10 months, or in 8 years?

And yet, they can't understand why they're losing subscriptions left and right. If I see TIME or NEWSWEAK in a doctor's office, I avoid even touching it.

Why not just use the same cover every month? They’re acting stupidly.

In my childhood I used to read Time Magazine, but by about 5th grade it became conspicuously light on information I was looking for and I gradually moved away from it to other, richer sources of information. That was in the early 190’s, but I can still remember the heft of the physical magazine (the bulk of the number of pages in a typical issue). Today I have not read it regularly, rather than while waiting in an MD’s office with no alternatives,in about 3 decades. Yesterday, in the opthalmologist’s office I picked up a mid-July issue while waiting and wondered immediately where the rest of the issue was - it has become rather thin. Reading it was like reading USA Today - you find yourself reading right off the end of the article like stepping off the end of a plank, wondering all the while “where is the rest of the article?” I assume the thin editions are a sign of their imminent failure and it really will not miss them when they vaporize.

Because that would give away the game: it's the same content every month already.

I assume Time photo shopped the doctor's outfit on O. I hope he did not have the adacaty to actually put on a smock and stethescope. Either way, what a slap in the face to actual doctors who are professionals and earn their smock and the right to wear it. How insulting that someone would be represented as a "healer" in this manner.

A Witch Doctor's outfit would have been perfectly appropriate.

Time’s acting more like a teenage girl’s magazine. “Isn’t he dreamy?”. Chris Matthews’ tingle, and why it’s okay...page 16.

I forgot to add that these are grand totals, especially for Obama since Time Ragazine started. That number also includes before the last election.

I'm showing W as appearing on 3 Time covers in the same period of his Presidency/election. First cover Jan 31, 2000 and the next one to compare with 0 is Jun 04, 2001. Only one was after his election.

Disregard this last post. I’ll have to do further research as some of those aren’t completly President Bush covers. I’ll be back with a full itemized list.
