Newsweek still hates America

While Americans saw this cover on their Feb. 2 issues of Newsweek...

...the Japanese saw this cover...

...and international readers saw this one...

It only took me one or two issues, a long time ago, to realize Newsweek, had little to do with news, and a lot to do with leftist, anti-American propaganda. I rarely ever read it. So is it any surprise that they'd have no qualms printing a false, anti-American story that resulted in numerous deaths?

A major, conservative, online, news site reports:

"I think they have crossed the line into outright treason," wrote one blogger yesterday. "It's time to see some of these enemy propagandists hanging from the end of a rope."

(Since they didn't name or link to the blogger, I didn't feel I needed to name or link to them.)

Commentaries on the Newsweek Fiasco

Pat Buchanan
Moral nihilism at Newsweek

“Only a few have urged that Newsweek's editors be brought up on sedition charges. But what Newsweek did is worse than the anti-war activity for which labor leader Eugene Debs was given 10 years in prison during World War I.”

Mark Steyn
Cricket star knows how to fire up fanatics

“...even these riots wouldn't have happened if Imran Khan hadn't provided the short fuse between Newsweek's match and those explosive mobs. Imran is a highly Westernized, wealthy Pakistani who found great fame and fortune in England.”

Michael Reagan
The White House Press Corps' Selective Outrage

“The day after the story broke about Newsweek publishing an inflammatory - and bogus - story accusing our military of desecrating the Koran, reporters at the daily White House press briefing reacted in rage. But their rage was not against Newsweek, for in effect inciting riots that killed at least 16 or 17 and injured scores more, but instead at the White House for daring to criticize Newsweek....When the tragic bombing of the Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City took place, Bryant Gumbel took to the air to blame it on Rush Limbaugh, G. Gordon Liddy, Oliver North (who had been on talk radio for just one week at the time), and me. It was our rhetoric, the former anchor said, that caused the bombers to do their deadly deed.”
