Rep. Michele Bachmann has declined to get into the scrum with Newsweek over its cover story of the presidential candidate called "The Queen of Rage," accompanied by an unflattering photo of the Minnesota Republican, but others are calling the magazine out of bounds in its depiction.

The National Organization for Women (NOW) President Terry O'Neill said that the cover of the magazine's latest edition is "sexist" and referred to a simple test by the group's founder Gloria Steinem to explain how they determined that conclusion -- would the magazine do the same to a man.

Ah, thanks. I knew there was something like that. Pretty much SOP for those Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dumber trash periodicals.

Atlantic's photographer pulled this same partisan propaganda crap with McCain in 2008.

Lib Photographer Admits Making McCain Look Sinister for Mag Cover (newsbusters.org ^ | September 13, 2008 | Noel Sheppard)

She quickly posted her own additional manipulated photos of McCain to her website and vented her hatred of the GOP candidate.

The Atlantic should have Googled Jill Greenberg before hiring her (Michelle Malkin.com ^ | September 15, 2008 | Michelle Malkin)

Media Schadenfreude and Media Shenanigans PING

The Feminazi speaks with a forked tounge. A woman DID do this to John McCain in 2008 (there was a photo shoot for Atlantic magazine and I've posted the links and pics in this thread)...

Now if she'd bothered to put out a press release when the LA Weekly (a Village Voice weekly paper) ran THIS racist and misogynist drawing of Condi Rice, she might've had some standing...

What sickening is that they pretend that the previous 12 years of political propaganda didn't happen. And that such crap wasn't pulled in the 1980s during Reagan's administration.

Oh no, only Golden Boy Obama has been subjected to such harsh criticism. Give me a break. He SUPPORTS this trash.

He hired him to do THIS illegal wheat poster campaign even after admitting in a letter to being aware of his Bushitler stickers.
