At least thats what you have to wonder about. Its either that or they are purposely keeping the news from us. Hey no surprise there right? This is just a taste of what passes for news in the US vs elsewhere in the world.Take a look.
Wonder why are younger people are tuned out? Not really.This isn't news in any shape.This is nonsense they are feeding us. This is why I don't pay any attention to the MSM anymore. I find it hard to even use to back up a point really.

It doesn't matter if you "subscribe" to Time or watch CNN the message is the same droll. If you go to the doctor, wait in the checkout, or wander by the break room at work, there you find it, boring you to death while the real stories go underreported or outright lied about.
Theres your sign…
Witness a recent example. When the news broke about Saudis bombing Yemen, what was everyone focused on? Another plane crash.
Threat of ground incursion from Saudi Arabia looms over Yemen

What I see is Time pandering to what they think will sell the most copies and make the most money.
Are the articles inside completely different or just the covers? That's more interesting to me than what's on the cover. I think there's a saying along those lines, isn't there?
Time draws up covers for the U.S. that cater to "first world problems." Imagine that.

When I have a slow day at work I cruise the major news sites: MSN, CNN and Fox. If I have time after that, I start hitting CBS, ABC. It's depressing that by now I can tell more or less which site produced a story based on how it's written - the ranking of facts in the story and the spin they are presented with.
There is no such thing as "just the facts" and don't let anyone tell you there ever was, but if you're willing to do a whole lot of reading the same thing, you might be able to fill in some blanks between what the different sites do and don't say.
So in other words this is just a sad attempt to bash western media and one more thing for the op Time isn't really main stream media. They are not a news organization unless you meant MSN and got confused. But Time is part of time Warner they are for entertainment not news. edit on 3/29/15 by dragonridr because: (no reason given)
