Via Media Blog, submitted for your disapproval. I honestly don’t know what Tantaros is on about, though. This is the biggest shot of the Newsweek cover I can find and I think Palin looks great. There’s a slight blemish on her cheek, but compare it to some — emphasis, some — of the Obama hagiography here. There’s plenty of five o’clock shadow in the Time and Vibe covers, and Newsweek’s “Black & White” photo isn’t exactly flattering.

Shot in the dark: Anyone here subscribe to Newsweek and willing to confirm or deny based on the full size cover?
