Hey everybody! America found it's voice right here on IAB!!!!1!!!! Why else would lukeforv123 make sweeping statements about what Americans believe? It couldn't possibly be because he is arrogant enough to think everyone thinks exactly like him, could it? Could it? COULD IT?

What the picture doesn't show you are all the covers that are exactly the same. The ones above that change outside America are different because nobody in, say, Asia, would know or care about Glenn Beck, the American education system, or American politics. They cater their main stories to each audience.

We're ignorant. TIME wouldn't sell in the U.S. if we reported what was really going on in the world. Besides, no one in America gives a crap about the rest of the world. People here consider Hawaii as foreign and exotic.

That insults me actually. Fk time magazine. I don't know why I care but it really feels like that magazine just slapped me in the face or something. Maybe because I live in the US. Still our version is the only one that is different and that leads me to believe they just don't care about this country's readers as much as they do others. As if to say our readers are of a lower intelligence and should read worthless articles written by the interns.

I would imagine the same stories are contained inside. They're just using different covers based on what will sell more.

Which still says something awful about our country, but at the very least the magazine is presenting the same information if we read the whole thing through.

Yeah, the media here is self-centered. We all know that.

I go to international sites to get news, usually BBC.

And we wonder why Americans know almost nothing about the world around them.
Also, what's the Canadian cover?

I've never heard of a major magazine issuing completely different issues for different countries outside of translations.

@ Gerry:

hahahaha yeah, I guess it was kinda like that :D

I won't respond to her again should she decide to be a troll about it. She is entitled to her opinion, as am I. I just think it's mighty arrogant of her to assume that because I'm a student I'm merely at "play" while she's off in the "real world." Nursing students see a lot of bad stuff, as well.

Oh well, I hope she has a good day :)

@tvremote: "These magazines have the same content, they are just marketed differently." I assure you they don't. Having subscribed to one version for seven years and the other version for three years, I'd say there is a big difference. I switched to the Economist, which is closer to the International version of Time.

@tvremote, if some "neutral stories" are more appealing than most important world shaping events this is just ignorance, nothing more.

If this is accurate, it wouldn't surprise me.
