Newsweek is run by idiots


Newsweek ran the caption, "Terrorism has account for a tiny fraction of the deaths in America," under a photo of Freedom Tower which was built over Ground Zero.

Yes, the caption said "account" not accounted.

As FDR said, we have nothing to fear but fear itself -- and fanatic Muslims with box cutters seizing control of planes and crashing them into our buildings.

  1. Newsweek has been off the rails for a couple of decades now. Maybe longer.

    1. Newsweek hasn't been worth reading since Raymond Moley stopped writing for it, and that's been nearly 50 years.

  4. And we get rectal exams by amateur pervert nurse practitioners in TSA uniforms at the airport because our political class can't face up to the fact that Muslims are the problem.

  5. Newsweek was sold by The Washington Post Company to stereo magnate Sidney Harman for the price of $1 and assumption of liabilities in 2010.

    It's value hasn't appreciated much since then.

  6. Awful Glenn posted your blog links TODAY, which means I can't get Vol. 2 free. Apparently that was a 1-day trick. Only Yesterday. Sigh...

  7. Golly. 7000 people die in the US each day. I guess they're right. They're such geniuses for being able to do the difficult math.

  9. Best thing is to defund Progressive worldview education in K-12, university and especially Journalism schools. Replace the pedagogy with "1776-Tragic-Liberty" worldview ed.

    1. I keep seeing you make this point on various blogs. While you have a valid point, I think you're missing something crucial. Our school system was designed for the children of Prussian factory workers of 120 years ago. The whole "gatekeepers of knowledge" paradigm has been overturned in journalism and book publishing. The music industry has undergone convulsions in its distribution model too. And websites like Khan Academy and Udacity and their upcoming competitors are making homeschooling a more viable option all the time.

      The time to call for the return to better quality teaching in schools was decades ago. Nowadays, that's like the call for a return to better buggy whip making.

  10. Newsweek ceased to be serious along the time Meacham came aboard in the '80s.

    Curses! Scooped again!

  12. Dropping my Newsweek subscription 10 years ago was the best thing I ever did.

  13. How did you actually come to read anything in Newsweek??

  14. More people have died at home in their own beds in the years since World War 2 than were killed in World War 2. So, Newsweek, was that war just over-rated?

  15. Newsweek is owned by IB Times, which is a cult.
