Tiny TIME pills

It used to be the province of Newsweek to offer fluff to American readers and serious stuff to the rest of the world. Well, TIME has just tuned into that auspicious trend.

Time US, April 2, 2007 -
Yes, it appears to be arguing for teaching the Bible in school, apparently unaware of the irony invoked with its choice of covers for Europe, Asia and the South Pacific.

Time Europe
Time Asia
Time South Pacific

Of course, whether Time editors realize it or not, they really are the same cover. Aren't they?

Nice catch. Although, not really too surprising... given the generations of conservative thought Time has tried to sell us dressed up as straight news. Of course, now that FOX News is around, this actually seems rather quaint.

Yeah, you have a point. But the subversion lies in supposed "reputation". Time tries to pretend its not part of the scam based on its reputation, something that has been rather besmirched of late. They hired Bill Kristol, for crissakes.
