STUNNING: Comparing U.S. & World Covers for TIME Magazine

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Each week, TIME Magazine designs covers for four markets: the U.S., Europe, Asia and the South Pacific. Often, America's cover is quite, well – different. This week offers a stark example.

Witness:

Yes, what you see is TIME devoting its cover in international markets to a critical moment in Egypt's revolution – perhaps the most important global story this week – while offering Americans the chance to contemplate their collective navels (with a rather banal topic and supposition, to boot).

This is not an isolated incident, for perusing TIME's covers reveals countless examples of the publication tempting the world with critical events, ideas or figures, while dangling before Americans the chance to indulge in trite self-absorption.

Witness these stunning dichotomies:

Viewing these covers, a question must be asked: do these moments of marketing (through a choice in covers) reveal more about Americans, or about the state of American journalism?

I fear the answer.

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Looking at these covers (all 2 years or more old) and seeing the usual knee-jerk comments I thought Hmm, sensationalized BS.. You can go to time.com and browse through all four world area covers.. While not as severe as the main post shows, and there are examples of the cover changing in the other areas in the same manor (Europe several times, Asia a couple of times).. The US TIME covers really do tend to put the world news secondary..

Maybe they do it based on the most emailed-about stories on their site:
