The New Yorker Fails

Today's installment of Untelevised depicts the Editor of the New Yorker, David Remnick, as a memeber of the KKK. Not because I think he's a racist, but because I think he's a fucking idiot. It's intentionally baseless and untrue... just like this week's cover illistration of 'The New Yorker'

The New Yorker is supposedly a pro-Obama magazine, but if you've seen the cover of this week's issue it's pretty much the exact opposite. It's the one with the "satirical caricature" of Mr & Mrs Obama as an Islamic terrorist and black militant giving each other a "terrorist fist jab" in the Oval Office with a painting of Bin Laden hanging over the fireplace where an American flag is burning... I swear I'm not making this shit up.

The picture is supposed to put a spin on the lies spread about Obama on the internets. The article inside the magazine, the one nobody is gonna read, sheds some light on those lies and the fact that they are lies but like I said... nobody is gonna read it.

What people will do is see the cover sitting on the magazine rack staring back at them depicting that black guy they're still not sure about as a fucking terrorist.

Do I think they did it on purpose to scare people? No. Did they do it to sell magazines? Yes. Are they fucking idiots that had no idea they were fucking idiots? YES.
