Magazine Cover of the Week: Bloomberg Businessweek

unnamedIt’s Friday, almost the weekend, and therefore, time to gather up your reading list…everything you saw this week but didn’t have time to actually read.

This week, FishbowlDC presents the latest issue of Bloomberg Businessweek and its cover story “Obama Is Too Cool for Crisis Management,” by Josh Green.

Green writes in the article’s opening:

“By the time President Obama gave in and appointed an Ebola czar on Oct. 17, the White House response to this latest national crisis had already run a familiar course: the initial assurance that everything was under control; the subsequent realization that it wasn’t; the delay as administration officials appeared conflicted about what to do; and the growing frustration with a president who seemed a step or two behind each new development. Meanwhile, public anxiety mounted as cable news hysteria filled the vacuum and shaped the perception of the unfolding crisis.”
