Some Famous Magazines are Dishonest and Treasonous



      The big brains at Harper's have a cover showing some Marine recruits in a row, with one faded out.  This is to illustrate a story with the title AWOL IN AMERICA: When desertion is the only option.

      Hmm, why is it that I can think of other options (like not volunteering in the first place, or committing suicide, or even doing your sworn duty?)

      And by the way, the owner of the picture is mad, because it didn't have one person faded, and Harper's wasn't supposed to alter it. The Marines are also angry, since they aren't deserters, and don't like illustrating a story about deserters.

Comments Florida Cracker:
Giulia Melucci, vice-president for public relations for Harper's says the cover photo is merely decoration. There's no word on what her reaction would be if she were pictured on the cover of Time with a knife superimposed in her hand to illustrate a story on "Women Who Kill."

Or if the HQ of Harper's was pictured on the cover of Newsweek to illustrate a story "Does Media Profit From Child Porn?"

Or "Magazines That Suck."

      Good question, that.  If anyone acquires data, let me know.

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
