Cover Battle: Fast Company or The New Republic

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This fight features Fast Company taking on The New Republic. For its latest issue, Fast Company went with a photograph of Anna Kendrick lying on what looks like a giant bed of hair. Gross. Imagine the dandruff that thing creates.

Meanwhile, The New Republic’s latest cover features Alex Trebek, who doesn’t think the Washington Redskins should change their name. “They weren’t called the Redskins because we thought Redskins were terrible; it’s because we admire their strength, their abilities,” Trebek told TNR. Sigh. We’ll take Old White Men Unable to Recognize Blatant Racism for $1,000, Alex.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
