To slip their collective head on through the door, it’s getting way too big.
From an article about the new cover of Time Magazine, where a tree is used to replace the flag that Marines are raising on Iwo Jima in order to hype on more about “Global Warmening”, we get this quote from the Managing Editor of Time:
“I think since I’ve been back at the magazine, I have felt that one of the things that’s needed in journalism is that you have to have a point of view about things,” Stengel said. “You can’t always just say ‘on the one hand, on the other’ and you decide. People trust us to make decisions. We’re experts in what we do. So I thought, you know what, if we really feel strongly about something let’s just say so.”
People trust you?! Not according to most of the recent polls I’ve seen. As a matter of fact, most people don’t trust you to take out the trash, much less make wise or intelligent decisions about our country or our world.
Experts in what you do?! I guess so, although I did not know that spinning excrement was something you could be rated an expert in.
Seriously, stop thinking you are that relavant, and stick with either reporting facts, or spouting editorials. But please, stop dressing up your opinions as facts and then trying to tell the rest of us you are the wise decision makers.
Makes me glad that the only time I ever pick up a copy of Time is right before I see the Doctor.
