Cover Battle: New York Times Magazine or Fortune

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s Cover Battle. This week we have The New York Times Magazine versus Fortune. The Times Mag went with a photo of a young golfer who is probably better than you. Even if you are better at golf than him, there’s no way you can beat those pants.

For its latest issue, Fortune went with a picture that we can only describe as “All Business.” Look at that squint! You only squint like that when you mean business. Or if you’re seeing My Teen is Pregnant and So Am I for the first time.

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