Tina Brown: Media Whore Flips

This week the slavish Obamallator Tina Brown turns on her tan mandate with that shameless hack Niall Ferguson blathering about Why Barack Obama Needs to Go - Newsweek and The Daily Beast

But the real question is:


When even the whores run away, your attractiveness has hit rock bottom.

Your Say

"Why won't anyone take my magazine seriously anymore?"

Because, Lucy, you've held the football one too many times and taken it away at the last minute one too many times.

-all the best,

If Tina published Niall Ferguson's jolly good essay about why Obama must go, she may be desperate to save her progressive rag.

Ferguson's essay is one of the best take-downs of Obama I have seen. Placed in Newsweek, I hope it might act as a sort of IED in the liberal community. Exploding heads and all that.

Reminds me of a half-dead carp thrashing in the mud of a dried up pond.

Hit The Road Barrack?

Is a setup!

Why now? Because this far out Newsweek will increase sales by appealing to independent and conservative voters, leaving ample time to double-back before polling day.

The last week of October they will spring the trap... "Although Romney is an outstanding American, after further consideration we have determined he would not be the best choice for president at this time. It would be unwise to change horses in the middle of the stream. President Obama needs another four years to finish what he started.

We have reached this conclusion from a fair and balanced point of view, as evident by previous opinion pieces.

Therefore we enthusiastically endorse President Obama for reelection."

Thanks for your support

Correction: Newsweek reminds me of a half-dead carp thrashing in the mud of a dried up pond. If Ferguson's piece extends Newsweek's life 24h, he should not have done it.

A jerkwad named Tod Akin made sure that this Newsweek thing wouldn't create much of a stir because he found a way to change the national conversation.
