Just in case you were wondering whether weekly news magazines still serve any purpose, the answer is no. Go read this epic post, from Hemant Mehta, documenting the perfidy of Joe Klein in a recent Time magazine cover story. Klein, if you are not familiar with him, has long been one of the hackiest of hack journalists. He pops up occasionally as a talking head on cable news shows, but he has never, not even by accident, said anything interesting or insightful during his appearances. Anyway, after reading Mehta’s post, go read Dale McGowan’s essay in the Washington Post.
