A Deathbed Confession

Newsweek cover: Hit the Road Barack - Why we need a new PresidentNow that Newsweek is about to go dark, its latest cover story is simultaneously historic while taking on the aspect of a death-bed confession.

Reports are that it is out of money and will soon be an online publication only. For decades, the magazine has been a lock-step member in good standing of the Left, promoting its redistributionist, capitulationist agenda while pretending to be a serious objective purveyor of news.

Just as a liar is ultimately exposed by his inability to remember to whom he told what, Newsweek’s agenda-driven reporting created lots of embarrassments for it and for the party master it served. A case in point, for those of us who contend that the global-warming scare is just the biggest leftist con ever, we can point to the 1970’s Newsweek cover story, still retrievable on search engines, The Coming Ice Age… so much for consensus in science.

Nevertheless, Newsweek’s cover story, Hit the Road Barack – Why we need a new President by Niall Ferguson, represents the first major defection within the ranks of the mainstream left. While they were making plans for early retirement, perhaps the editors and senior executives at Newsweek finally realized what their junior staff and mailroom employees already knew. Unfettered liberalism will ruin the chances for prosperity for everyone’s children and grandchildren, theirs and ours. Perhaps, like a deathbed confession, the story which must be causing real trauma in the White House, is an admission of guilt, an admission that it, Newsweek Magazine, was a purveyor of great harm to this nation.

About the Author:

Larry Kelley’s life was utterly changed by 9/11. On the day after the attacks, on his way to work, he was struck by the sudden realization that World War III had commenced. Like most Americans he desperately wanted to find out who were these people who attacked us, what could ordinary citizens do to join the battle and how can those plotting to kill us in future attacks be defeated. Mr. Kelley has written scores of columns on the dangers of western complacency.
