From CNN.com: Palin slams ‘sexist’ Newsweek cover
Palin took aim at Newsweek’s eye-catching cover this week that shows the former vice presidential candidate in her running outfit – an image that was apparently lifted from a Runner’s World photo shoot months ago. Writing on her Facebook page Monday night, Palin said the depiction is flat out “sexist, and oh-so-expected.”
“The choice of photo for the cover of this week’s Newsweek is unfortunate. When it comes to Sarah Palin, this ‘news’ magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant,” Palin wrote. “The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist, and oh-so-expected by now.”
Quitting on your state during the worst recession in recent memory and avoiding all the hard decision governing requires for a money grabbing book tour is a serious issue, but this is not the way for Newsweek to comment on that.
Newsweek should definitely do better than this.
