Why are we ever shocked at how hateful the MSM can be to conservative candidates?

But they are wrong on this one. The test would fail: they would do this to a conservative man.

Not shocked at all. But my cynical nature asks: was it photoshopped?

Did any of the two dozen readers of that dead tree media rag even notice? I haven’t looked at newsweak in 30 years and that was in a laundromat in Hoonah, Alaska waiting for my clothes to dry.

“would the magazine do the same to a man.”

Well yeah. Was it Time or Newsweak that did the cover of Rush Limbaugh that made him look like he had horns and smoke curling above his head? This was back in the 1990s.
In my opinion, this is not sexist. Just typical shitty shit from the MSM.

Stupid of Newsweek to alienate many women with that cover.
I get a kick out of NOW, defending Bachmann. They have let so many Conservative/Republican women get treated poorly for years. They have to be trying to fix their image..... A good group of ladies defending Bachmann and they are in the news because of it too. Maybe they hired a new PR person attempting to make them appear sincere, relevant and legit ;) Fail :)

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 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.

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...
