    If beating dead horses were an Olympic event, Joe Klein would have more medals gracing his neck than Michael Phelps. On his magazine's Swampland blog, the Time columnist returned to his latest overwrought left-wing pandering point: labeling hardliner President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as the Iranian version of George W. Bush: The protesters admire our freedom, but they are appalled--and insulted--by our neocolonialist condescension over the past 50 years. The reformers, and even some conservatives, consider Ahmadinejad the George W. Bush of Iran--a crude, unsophisticated demagogue, who puts a strong Potemkin face to the world without very much knowledge of what the...
  • Time's Joe Klein: Ahmadinejad Supporters Like Bush's Base Voters, Mousavi Like Erudite John Kerry

    In the midst of his June 16 Swampland blog screed leveled against the "unhinged" Sen. John McCain for his criticism of President Obama's low-key response to the Iranian election, Time magazine's Joe Klein also worked in a comparison of hardliner Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's support base with former U.S. President George W. Bush's core supporters: It is not even clear that Ahmadinejad--who has significant backing from the sort of people who support Republicans here (the elderly, the religious extremists) plus a real following among working-class Iranians--would have lost this election, if the votes had been counted fairly. (I tend to...
  • Time Magazine's Joe Klein: Rush Limbaugh Is 'Delivering Misinformation, Lies'

    Time's Joe Klein on Sunday accused conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh of "delivering misinformation, lies to a large audience in America." Such was said during quite a debate between himself and the Washington Times' Amanda Carpenter on CNN's "Reliable Sources." After Klein angrily made this comment, even host Howard Kurtz seemed a bit taken aback by it saying, "Well, lies is a strong word, but we'll come back to that another time." What follows is the video and partial transcript of this exchange that began when Kurtz brought up some of the potentially over the line jokes made at...

Time‘s editors would once have cut this sort of demented exaggeration. I know; I used to work there. But quality editing is, as Walsh might say, endangered and dwindling fast. Oddly, this runs parallel to magazine sales. Walsh continues: Through our growing...

    The TIME economists agreed that one of the major problems facing the Reagan Administration is the expectation of sustained price rises. Union leaders, bankers and businessmen have all built socalled inflation premiums into their plans. As a margin of safety in case rapid inflation persists, they add a few extra percentage points to a wage demand, the rate of a loan or the price of a new product. Said Greenspan: "The psychological impact of inflation is greater than at any tune in the postwar era." The task of the new Administration will be to convince the American public that these...

    The mainstream media's support for Barack Obama's presidential campaign was so biased that even major insiders are now admitting they were shocked by its depth and depravity. Last week, Time magazine's Mark Halperin called the media's performance during the campaign simply "disgusting." Halperin told a panel of media analysts at the Politico/USC conference on the 2008 election, "It's the most disgusting failure of people in our business since the Iraq war." He added, "It was extreme bias, extreme pro-Obama coverage."

A former top editor at Time Inc. fired off a scathing memo to Executive Vice President Sylvia Auton, the London-based head of the magazine giant's lifestyle group, criticizing her handling of the deep job cuts within her group. The letter was penned by Susan Haynes, a senior editor at Coastal Living from April 1998 to August 2007, who is now the senior acquisitions editor at Manasha Ridge Press.

Like Lincoln, Goodwin is always open to contributions from her rivals, although Lincoln was better at crediting their words. And hasn't Obama talked to former rival Hillary...

Managing editors at five of the magazine group’s titles that employ Newspaper Guild members–Time, People, Sports Illustrated, Fortune and Money–will send out memos today detailing some of cuts, and will ask for volunteers for a buyout program. Last month, Time Warner’s (TWX) magazine unit announced a sweeping reorg that is expected to cost about 600 employees their jobs. But the details have yet to be announced. That will start changing today, but my understanding is that the cuts won’t be accomplished with one...

    Time Inc., the world’s largest magazine company, is set to announce a revamping that will result in job cuts of 6 percent — more than 600 positions — and a reorganization that could radically alter the culture at the venerable publishing house. The company plans to reveal the overhaul in a memorandum Tuesday evening from Ann S. Moore, Time Inc.’s chairman and chief executive, and the layoffs will begin in about two weeks. No magazines are scheduled to close, but some are likely to be severely cut back. Ms. Moore was already planning an overhaul because of the upheavals in...

    As he tried to jump-start his flagging campaign earlier this week, John McCain uttered a new rallying cry: "We've got them just where we want them." But even his die-hard supporters had to question that assessment. According to countless public polls, McCain's campaign has been losing, not gaining ground. No candidate wants to be down about seven points nationwide with no clear momentum and less than three weeks to go. Numbers are likely to shift before Election Day as voters are forced to make their final commitment. And McCain still has a shot at victory, if the Bush states that...

Charles Gibson, gentleman journalist, was not about to field dress Sarah Palin before a national television audience, but at times he seemed to be trying.

    Barack Obama's suggestion that we can't drill our way out of the current energy shortage, but we can solve the problem through tire inflation, has been the source of much hilarity. We did the math here, and found that it would take approximately 11,308 years of tire inflation to equal the energy we can obtain by developing our own petroleum resources. Now, remarkably, Time magazine has rushed to the defense of its candidate, arguing that "Obama is right." The author of the article, Michael Grunwald, mixes apple-and-orange statistics to try to create the false impression that there is more to...

This story by Richard Corliss begins a long sneer in the direction of William F. Buckley, Jr. starting with its very title, "William F. Buckley: Mandarin of Right-Wing TV." From that low point, Corliss continues his descent into his ill-mannered septic tank as he blames Buckley for inspiring what Corliss describes as "partisan political harangue as infotainment" following an appearance on the Jack Paar show in 1962: Few viewers realized that those two evenings 46 years ago would birth a durable...

    Time magazine received a body blow in the latest circulation report from the Audit Bureau of Circulations, leading a round of bad news for consumer magazines in a variety of categories. Comparing the second half of 2007 with the same period in 2006, Time Inc.'s flagship title saw newsstand sales fall 19.4% to 107,277, as subscriptions tumbled 17.5% to 3,244,595. Overall, circulation fell 17.6% to 3,351,872. In November 2006, Time cut its rate base 18.8% to 3.25 million, so the decline in subscriptions may be due partly to a purge of "junk" circulation, including automatically renewed subscriptions. But it's hard...

    Just saw this on the news stand. Time Magazine is doing everything they can to get McCain the nomination. The style of the photo lets you know how hard they are trying.

    Sunday, December 23, 2007 Here's one reason Time should have named Gen. David Petraeus its Person of the Year. In fact, here are 70 reasons: Seventy senators voted last Tuesday to provide $70 billion more to fund the Iraq War, and the latest cash came free and clear. No timetable for withdrawal. No deadlines. No strings attached. Who would have thought this possible a year ago? Or a half-year ago? Surely not the Iraq Study Group, which wanted a staged withdrawal. Surely not the nation's media-cracy, which had decided Iraq's "civil war" was "lost." Surely, not Democrats, who'd taken control...

    On the day after he assumed command of the Multi-National Forces in Iraq last February, David Petraeus toured some of the neighborhoods of Baghdad and was shocked. "They were ghost towns, blasted, abandoned. -snip- I remembered thriving markets and community life. I simply hadn't grasped the magnitude of the destruction, not just the sectarian violence but the [intra-sect] violence of al-Qaeda on Sunnis." There were other shocks. Petraeus had spent most of 2005 in Baghdad trying to train Iraqi Army units. In 2006, while he was serving as commander of the Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, Kans., much of...

    Man Of The Year INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY Posted 12/19/2007 Year In Review: Time selects Vladimir Putin as its "Person of the Year" because of the stability he has brought to Russia. Our choice is Gen. David Petraeus — ... The newsweekly's 2007 honor went to the Russian leader because of Putin's "extraordinary feat of leadership in taking a country that was in chaos and bringing it stability," according to Managing Editor Richard Stengel. If returning a nation said to be on the road to democracy to its militaristic and autocratic past is a criterion, Putin is certainly a valid candidate....

    No one is born with a stare like Vladimir Putin's. The Russian President's pale blue eyes are so cool, so devoid of emotion that the stare must have begun as an affect, the gesture of someone who understood that power might be achieved by the suppression of ordinary needs, like blinking. The affect is now seamless, which makes talking to the Russian President not just exhausting but often chilling. It's a gaze that says, I'm in charge.
  • Romney: Man of Year choice (Putin) 'disgusting'

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — Count Republican Mitt Romney among those who aren't happy with Time Magazine's choice of Russian President Vladimir Putin for Person of the Year. In an interview with CNN's Glen Beck, the presidential candidate called the choice "disgusting." "You know, he imprisoned his political opponents. There have been a number of highly suspicious murders," Romney said on Beck's radio show. "He has squelched public dissent and free press. And to suggest that someone like that is the Man of the Year is really disgusting. I'm just appalled." "Clearly General Petraeus is the person, or one of a few...
