Another Newsweek Cover Controversy?

Newsweek’s January 23 cover features President Obama with the accompanying headline:  “Why Are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?”

The piece, written by Andrew Sullivan, examines the middle-of-the-road politics of the President.

Doesn’t really matter though.

It’s the headline that’s got some circles riled up.  Heck, things just wouldn’t be right if Fox News didn’t shoot back on its show The Five with a segment entitled, “Why Are Newsweek Editors So Dumb?

But isn’t attention the purpose of it all? Mission accomplished.
