Obama has always been gay. What rock have you been living under? Seriously, he's president - of course he's pretty happy.

I got Newsweek in the mail. I cannot believe that title. Supporting gay marriage =/= actually gay. I haven't liked Newsweek since the new editor stepped in.

It will sell magazines. Truth, honesty and integrity, take a back seat to the shock values that will get people to notice the magazine and purchase it.

So Newsweek knows how the business is run, and I doubt it will alienate too many of their readers...

It's ridiculous how blatantly liberal Newsweek has gotten.

Media is done by specialization these days, meaning there is a flavor for anyone who likes that flavor. Newsweek has a specific bias like most other outlets. I generally don't even buy political magazines any more as the stuff is available on the internet.

Although Sports Illustrated is still going bias free after many years.

Except for a new york sports bias!!

Seriously, no one cares about the Yankees :P

Hey, WriterDave, you were saying about Liberal Bias being non-existent in the media?

I never saw him say that, but if he did, it's obviously wrong.

Only someone who reads or watches media simply to have their point of view constantly reinforced could possibly say there is no bias one way or the other.

There is a clear right wing bias of some publications and shows and similarly a left wing bias of others, and it's always pretty obvious. I actually like this manifestation personally, I can watch/read a left wing outlet and then watch/read a right wing outlet and actually get all the information on an entire story.
