Bag’s Take-Away:
If the cover photo of Hillary inaugurating Newsweek/Beast is completely forgettable, this shot accompanying the article by Stephanie Sinclair is throughly interesting. Unfortunately, though, I have no idea what it’s saying — except that, with the designer sunglasses and the montage of Hillary, Secret Service Man and sheik guy, it’s a very stylish image. And style, more than anything (oh, and the cult of personality), is what the new Newsweek is really about.
