The New Yorker v. Barack

The well-respected New Yorker jumped outside of the box this month with a cover of Barack and his wife giving a terrorist fist jab. It is meant to be sarcastic, pointing the finger at the ridiculous image right-wing media has created for Obama.

And while New Yorker covers are usually spot on, this one has to be the most confusing art direction choice I have seen in a LONG time. The
Obama camp agrees. Get your act together guys, before your "satire" reaches the wrong people and flubs this whole thing.

DivShare service is garbage time. The player and ease of use when it is working is why I haven't changed to something else yet.

Elijah said...

Dukes said...
