What’s happening with TIME Magazine? Suddenly the magazine that has been promoting liberalism and related causes for eons is writing articles that actually have an honest appraisal of the news, without the heavy leftist slant. It even threw a left-handed complement at Rush Limbaugh, albeit they had to call him a name: “obnoxious anti-environmentalist” before they reluctantly agree with his assessment of the Gulf oil spill.
Slight detour: One comparison to the amount oil spilled into the gulf compares to two 12oz cans of Foster’s beer being dumped into a football stadium full of water the size of the Coliseum to give you an idea of the amount of oil compared to the amount of water involved.
I wanted to say TIME had to look truth in the face and be honest, but I don’t think that’s the reason they seem to be adjusting their editorial evaluations. Liberal dogma, which they preach, has been killing their magazine, and I think they are actually realizing that honesty could increase their readership. In other words, they’re trying, begrudgingly, to report accurately. In truth, it’s a matter of survival for TIME.
They are watching conservative publications and web pages thriving while TIME is withering. They’re only one step behind the essentially defunct NEWSWEEK. Reality is a harsh teacher. Maybe TIME is actually learning the lessons of real journalism. Maybe too, “Journolist” made them realize just how off track they had become.
