      No, Niall Ferguson is sort of endorsing Romney according to his column from 2011...

      Have you read the article from Newsweek? What does it say?

      Niall Ferguson is a libertarian axxhole.

    Magazine covers and headlines are designed to make sales.

    It's to sale more magazines. Newsweek is notoriously liberal.

    I, personally, would have gone with, "Go to hell, Barack," instead.

    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."

    How hard is it to get basic facts straight?
