if I was Palin I`d be ticked at all my "defenders" basically calling me a dog.
And that, dear people is saying a LOT, considering I find most of these things about as insightful as picking my toenails in a drunken stupor.
Another reason I avoid Fox news. They`re slightly biased...
Oh wait, Fox News, that explains a lot.
-Thanks for the picture GothicQueen
Then I hear "showing human flaws we all have" well if we all have them, then you wont give a flying drat if hers are shown on a mag cover?
Overreaction is an understatement. drating women.
Yes. The unretouched picture. LARGE. No jokes. in all it`s glory. And quite honestly I don`t see a problem. She looks a hell of a lot better then I would I`ll give her that much.
so honestly? where is the problem?
Is this really what we bish about? I can`t wait to move to Canada. This is sick.
not biased retards
why is there news dedicated to this?
Id slap my dick in her face
I fully agree.The American culture seems to care more about external beauty than reason and intellect.
That`s what she looks like. Why is everyone freaking out? I`m more upset when people are retouched beyond recognition. It`s fake; it makes me think you`re fake. Especially in a political campaign. How can I trust you when I don`t even know what you really look like?
The blond lady is the host of the show, isn`t she? How on earth is it possible for her to show her own personal opinion (or that of her TV channel) on the matter so clearly?! Shouldn`t she be neutral in her position?
Is it normal in the US to have to get your information from biased TV stations? I mean, it wasn`t just a slight tendency - it was so very obviously, it hurt!
Because they did it only to her.
If they did it to everyone then i`m all for it.
But seriously, an "insult", a "slap to the face", an "unfairness"... That is a bit exaggerated, huh?
Im going to assume you messed up the order and its republicans made the world what it is right now.
If that was your statement, then yes.
We are in a land where blacks, white, hispanics, and asians can all go against Canadians. Its beautiful.
and primetimekin, i dunno what you are talking about. republicans made what the world is right now.
I do not defend MSNBC every chance I get and I wouldn`t because I do think they have a bias. At least I can admit this and take that into consideration every time I watch anything on that channel, which is hardly ever.
You have to realize what news shows and channels have some sort of bias which is important to know because it is what is motivating their stories. Fox News is usually motivated to make liberals look bad and conservatives good, vice versa for MSNBC! They solely brought up this "issue" for that purpose I just explained.
I can`t take anyone seriously here who defends tactics like this from news stations.
As opposed to the liberal media that loves to demonize fox news.
Whats the difference?
The funny thing is most people here are talking about it being how people really look and no one should be upset that they didn`t "fake" her.
Then most of the people here go out to party`s in brand named clothing and dont leave the house without make-up. Face it, we`re all self-conscious
Logical democrats.. thats an oxymoron!
2. The hot girl says so. I agree whole-heartedly with her
she has the finger waving. i`ma stop listening now. kinna stupid really
newsweek mightve been trying to show the people of america that palin was, in fact, "one of us" by NOT retouching her photo. to retouch the photo and to say she was like everyone else in america is quite the contradiction, no?
Ya, that`s a good one. The guys at work will have a good laugh at it.
"It highlights every imperfection that every human has"*Head-desk*
" OH NOEZ AN IMPERFECT PERSON? "
WAIT!you can see her peach fuzz, and her pours, and her hair roots, and her nose hair, and whatever it is that makes her look absolutely hidious?
shes not even ugly..this is just bitchy gossipsomeone always finds something to bitch about
what the hell.were on the verge of recession, all the other banking companies around the world are going to poo, they could be talking about something meaningful
likemaybeiraq? recession? more of george bush`s poo maybe?
im american,and im starting to hate the fact i live in this corrupt little country,
fox news sucks, and shouldnt even be on television.
I have the magazine, it`s not that bad.
How does this have anything to do with politics? I`m just glad this doesn`t represent Republicans in general, or we`d be even more screwed than we are now. (I`m a democrat, btw)
You can`t have it both ways.
Except in bed >_>
She`s human? She`s not perfect? She HAS FLAWS??? THOSE BASTARDS!!!! How dare they not completely retouch the picture and make her look hotter than a supermodel! She should sue them and have the FBI and IRS take them down. Every employee of Newsweek should be destroyed and locked up forever!
Good grief this is just more proof that Fox sucks. This isn`t news, this is bitchy gossip. Ladies (and I use that term loosely), go back to the beauty salon for this crap. Don`t try to call it news.
No problem! (says Fox)
Having to retouch it as little as possible and she still looks this beautiful is amazing. Also, this photo WAS retouched slightly. If they did it so much to the point where you didn`t see pours it would look so fake since it is such a close up shot.
Fox easily could`ve just said how amazing this was to show this women in real light and how beautiful she still looked. But they love to demonize the liberal media!
we`re on the verge of a recession and people are directing their attention to some woman`s peach fuzz?
everyday i get more and more ashamed of my country..
Goes to reaffirm that Newsweek is not about News, Its about spinning politics to the left and giving liberals their talking points 52 times a year.
It`s quite ironic that Fox has taken this slant on the story, broadcasting their own prejudices to lots of people who may not have come to that conclusion themselves. There are those who may have seen this frank photo and though `huh, I guess she`s honest and upfront, open and brave` instead of `oh yuk, I can see her pores, what a hag`.
Way to go Fox for making up people`s minds before they had the chance to make up their own minds.
all those people on the cover of almost any magazine are completley photoshopped... they arent really that skinny nor are they that tan youve all seen the videos of the before and after for magazines..
Just drop it
Faux News are a bunch of @ssholes.
There`s a reason only 2 or 3 times in the history of the US have you chosen the shorter candidate. Some tiny things, are a huge deal.
Oh wow...I didn`t human beings in their 40s were expected to be the epitome of perfection.. guess I`ll be screwed.
I`m not a fan of Palin, but wow, that woman took this waaaay too far.
And she`s just a running to be vice president. Does that really matter?
No, it does not.
IF ITS NORMAL, WHY RETOUCH IT?its not the like results of the election is based on facial hairs or wrinkles that might SWAY the publics` opinions.
Its not like a republican would be a democrat because Palin doesn`t have a perfect face.
That`s a ridiculous question. We democrats have no double standards....
3 woman television personalities. Their lives revolve looking pretty for the camera. I doubt there`s anything on the face of the planet with a penis who gives a poo about this. Likewise, if McCain had selected a man as his VP and this happens it`s a non issue.
I think the core issue I`d like to get back too though, is how both parties suck.
I don`t see anything I wouldn`t expect to see on the face of a woman her age.
and if i hear that woman say `slap in the face` one more time, im gonna slap her in the face.
Please...people, beauty is fleeting. If you obsess with it, you`ll lose it ever faster.
Is anyone wondering why they aren`t talking about OTHER ISSUES while they`re arguing over some stupid magazine issue that will be in a landfill next month?
Anyone else sense a DISTRACTION going on here?
drat politics, and drat fox news.
and who the hell cares what she looks like? shes running for VP not americas top model, why doesnt the media talk about her politics instead of how she looks on the magazine
The bitch says it perfectly "It highlights every imperfection that every human being has" EVERYONE HAS THEM SO THEREFORE...IT DOESN`T MATTER.
She`s running for VP not for another motherdrating beauty pageant you dimwitted idiots.
"It`s mortifying. It`s mortifying" Yeah, it`s so terrible she`s human...it`s SO terrible she has flaws on a cover of a magazine.
Y`know what, I`m probably going to start a flame war for saying this...But I gotta say it:
So many women are blinded by the fact that Palin IS in fact a WOMAN that none of them are paying ANY attention to any of her stats. I swear to you, Look at almost half of the women going "PALIN IS AMAZING"...then ask them what Palin has done that`s beneficial, and how she could benefit the US through VP`ing and possibly ((most likely since McCain`s old ass will probably DIE)) as a President?! And I will tell you now most of them will look at you blankly then go "Shes
As far as the cover goes, who f*cking cares. It`s a picture, ffs. On the other hand, It`s 2:30 am, and I`m really tired.

- I should point out we don`t actually know Obama had his photos retouched.
Wow, so then what is your point Fox? We think Palin looks normal, and in this picture Obama looks fuzzy! SCANDAL!
they really make us look bad.
I find this disgustingly unoffensive, if you will.
drat you fox news
drat you sarah palin
