Sarah Palin Featured on Newsweek Cover, Photo Causes Controversy

Atlanta, GA 10/08/2008 11:04 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Gov. Sarah Palin is featured on the cover of Newsweek Magazine this week, prompting controversy for the picture the magazine selected.

Palin was featured as the cover story "She's One of the Folks", which highlighted Palin's "Joe Six-Pack" appeal, but questioned its relevancy to her VP candidacy. The article cited her interview with Katie Couric as a sign that she piques the interest of voters due to her common appeal.

The cover photo is a very close-up picture, which drew controversy because many people say that a close-up picture of a woman is meant to be unflattering.

In addition, the last time her running mate Sen. John McCain's opponent Sen. Barack Obama was featured on Newsweek, it appeared as if he was adorned with a halo, claiming that Newsweek has a left-wing slant that supports Obama.
