Can it be so easily demonstrated why the American media has completely turned its back on journalism? Check it out... Here is the current cover of Newsweek across various areas of the world.
Annie Leibovitz is tired and nursing a cold, and she' s just flown back to New York on the red-eye from Los Angeles, where she spent two days shooting Angelina Jolie for Vogue....
I guess there are no other magazines available to feature stuff like art, photography, pop issues or families and children. Newsweek has to push Afghanistan off the cover in the states to feature this.
Meanwhile the foreign issues note, Five years after the Afghan invasion, the Taliban are fighting back hard, carving out a sanctuary where theyâ€”and Al Qaeda's leadersâ€”can operate freely.
I guess Newsweek figures what you don't know can't hurt you. Just shut up and look at the pretty pictures of Angelina's baby.

Time Magazine shows the rest of the world one thing, and America something different.
This week, Time's cover story is an essay arguing in favor of teaching the Bible in schools. On the cover of its international edition is a story: "The Truth About Talibanistan," about the resurgence of the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan (and also, Pakistan), and how it's "the next battleground of the war on terrorism." The story is in the U.S. edition of the magazine but not on the American cover, presumably because Rick Stengel & co. think the Bible will do better newsstand.

It's sad how they always set the muslim image to where people see them as villains. That time magazine shows a muslim with a "rawr" face and an RPG launcher. Like they couldn't show "losing afghanistan" with a picture of innocent muslim families (yes they have families too mass media) losing their homes because of the conflict? I'm tired of media and our culture villainizing every aspect of muslim and middle eastern culture.
