During today’s White House press briefing with Josh Earnest and moments after initial reports that American journalist Steve Sotloff was beheaded by ISIS, TIME’s Zeke Miller asked Earnest about the reports or for reaction, which the White House press secretary had yet to learn or see.
“This is something that the administration has obviously been watching very carefully since this threat against Mr. Sotloff’s life was originally made a few weeks ago,” said Earnest this afternoon. “Our thoughts and prayers, first and foremost, are with Mr. Sotloff and Mr. Sotloff’s family, and those who worked with him. The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to trying and rescue Mr. Sotloff.” Read more

TIME Executive Editor and Washington Bureau Chief Michael Duffy and Executive Editor Radhika Jones have been promoted to Deputy Managing Editors, according to an internal memo from TIME Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs. Duffy, a long-time Washington hand, who has been at TIME since 1985 and Executive editor since 2011, has been in the news recently, defending his magazine’s controversial “Chris Christie is a Big Fat Elephant” cover.
He explained to Chris Matthews yesterday, ”Well, [Christie]‘s obviously a big guy. He’s obviously a big Republican. But he’s also done a really huge thing here this week.” Nice save, Mike.
Duffy has shepherded big cover stories all year at TIME, like April’s story about the “Latino Reformation” and “Bitter Pill” about exorbitant hospital costs.
Jones came to TIME from the Paris Review in 2008 and was also promoted to Executive Editor in 2011. She has taken over their core features such as Person of the Year and the TIME 100. She has also introduced Interview-style interviews to TIME, enlisting Michael Bloomberg to interview Jay-Z and Barack Obama to intervew Tom Coburn, among others.
The new cover of TIME is titled, “THE WORLD’S MOST EXCLUSIVE CLUB, The Secret Society of Presidents.”
In this week’s cover story, Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy look at the private relationships among the living U.S. Presidents — the backroom deals, rescue missions and rivalries — that have marked modern American history.
The cover story is adapted from their forthcoming book, The Presidents Club, and brings to light new details, including: The first two calls Barack Obama placed on the night that the SEALs killed Osama bin Laden was to George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.
Nancy Gibbs has been promoted to Deputy Managing Editor of TIME magazine. In an internal memo announcing the news, John Huey and Rick Stengel gushed, proclaiming Gibbs “the very embodiment of the TIME brand.”
“Her work has long set the journalistic standard for its writing, its ethics, and its ability to connect with TIME readers around the world. This new role will take advantage of all her many skills,” read the memo.
Besides holding the record for most covers written, Gibbs has chronicled a huge array of issues and news stories – from presidential elections and Columbine to Katrina and 9/11. She is a National Magazine Award recipient and the co-author of New York Times Bestseller “The Preacher and the Presidents; Billy Graham in the White House.” Congrats to Nancy!
This week TIME cover addresses the it story of the moment: Sex. Lies. Arrogance. What Makes Powerful Men Act Like Pigs.
Nancy Gibbs explores the relationship between sex and power, writing, “The arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn in New York City for allegedly trying to rape a hotel maid has ignited a fierce debate over sex, law, power and privilege.”
Managing Editor Richard Stengel also chimes in with a note on the topic du jour: “We expect people in power not to abuse it by taking advantage of the powerless, which is at the heart of the accusations against DSK. Schwarzenegger had the power to conceal his behavior from the voters and did so—which itself is an abuse. The French protest that even powerful men are entitled to a private life. But the reality is that the line between private and public behavior for public servants does not really exist, and pretending that it does is no longer useful.”
