Fergusun (and Newsweek) have taken a lot of heat for the less than factual cover story, which wasn't fact checked by Newsweek, because they presume their writers are writing factually accurate material. The article misinforms the public by giving false information. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/2 … d=webmail6
Newsweek did not fact-check Ferguson's cover story, according to Dylan Byers, a media reporter at Politico. Byers wrote on Twitter that a Newsweek spokesman said the magazine does not have a fact-checking department, and that "we, like other news organisations today, rely on our writers to submit factually accurate material."
The POTUS is depicted on the cover of Newsweek with a rainbow halo over his head, and the caption reads, "The First Gay President." I don't think this is fair. Obama isn't gay, so it's misleading, at best.
