The Year In Newsweekly Covers

Before the covers (which you've probably guessed at), Businessinsider discusses a new term, "Screwflation," which the author defines as inflation plus getting hit by other rising costs.

The actual coining of this term is by Doug Kass at Barron's, but it's behind a subscription wall.

April 19, 2010 cover date. Newsweek, the magazine sold for one rectangular U.S. dollar, with many questioning if it was worth so much:

Note the second headline at the top of the cover: "Hate on the Right." Pretty much a story they can, and do, write every other month. And this was nearly a year before Gabrielle Giffords was shot by a left-wing lunatic and 9/11 Truther. This was back, if I'm recalling right and I'm probably not, when the media became outraged over an attempt by citizens to express their opposition to ObamaCare to the politicians who allegedly represent them.

June 20, 2011 cover date. Time, which I'm sure not saying isn't biased or Obama-loving, but which at least recognizes the outer limits of plausible spin:

The Baltimore Sun (from whom that first cover is linked) expressed a little skepticism about Newsweek's Whoo-Hoo cover.

Time Magazine doesn't seem proud of its cover story. I searched for it online, paging through Time's online splash page, its US splash, its politics splash, its business splash. Couldn't find it. I suppose it might be linked down the page.

I eventually found it by a google search, going through someone else's website to get it.

I know it's a few days old now but sort of think this should still be prominent.
