Bag’s Take-Away:
Is it me or does this cover, without mentioning his name, absolutely ooze Romney?

Bag’s Take-Away:
The emasculation of Wall Street? I don’t believe it for a second. Rather, the gratuitous snap “taking it in the shorts” feels more like New York Mag… 
1. over-empathizing with the 1%-ers and those luxury goods advertisers. (Is there a shoe and suit credit on an inside page, btw?)
2. showing some Businessweek penis/ private part envy — prime examples here and below:

Bag’s Take-Away:

Here come the OWS covers. NY Mag’s “Sucks To Be Us” cover features demoralized youth, the hyper-modern motif of the human billboard/protest sign and the play on Arab Spring with the dual Stars-and-Stripes and keffiyeh neck accessories. The twist is that the uprising means there might actually be some hope for the shoe-gazing “post-hope” generation.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Upcoming NYT Magazine catalyzing media love affair with the Libyan rebels. This photo from the VII Network, in particular, drives home the symbolism of the “citizen-warrior.”
(Media - especially visual media - does like to keep it simple: heros-and-villains, black-and-white.)
(photo: Eric Bouvet/VII Network, for The New York Times caption: The anti-Qaddafi forces were composed of both civilians and some ex-soldiers no longer loyal to the regime. slideshow here.:
