USA gets the media it deserves

Newsweek covers

Can it be so easily demonstrated why the American media has completely turned its back on journalism? Here is the current cover of Newsweek across various areas of the world.

From the cover blurb: 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 …

Meanwhile the foreign issues note, Five years after the Afghan invasion, the Taliban are fighting back hard, carving out a sanctuary where they — and Al Qaeda’s leaders — can operate freely.

Newsweek must figure that what you don’t know can’t hurt you. Just shut up and look at the pretty pictures of Angelina’s baby.
