First the angel Obama-el got his gay-lo from Newsweek, and now, in the creepy 2013 Inauguration issue, he’s the second coming.
Framing President Obama as our lord and savior isn’t surprising. We’re more shocked by the news that Newsweek still has covers after killing its print publication. But that doesn’t make it any less creepy and cult-like.
Hey, Newsweek knows its readers. (We think “readers” with an “s” is accurate, but our data may be stale.)
Good thing Newsweek had no credibility to lose! [Update: It's kind of hilarious that Newsweek's editors think this kind of trolling will result in increased readership.]
Newsweek is basically the Slipknot of journalism now. High shock value, really crappy content.—
