"Newsweek" Palin Cover a Big Controversy: "Newsweek" Clarifies Thought Process

The Newsweek Palin cover has stirred up controversy. Palin, sporting short shorts and standing by a flag, is seen on the...

You might wonder why Sarah Palin would allow herself to be photographed wearing short shorts. She was profiled for a runner's magazine, and the photograph was taken for them. It was used out of context on the Newsweek cover, and the fact that it was misused upset the former Alaskan Governor.

Newsweek contends that their choice in the photo was the most interesting image available to illustrate the theme of the cover. The theme of the cover and the article is to raise questions about Sarah Palin's seriousness.

According to Newsweek, Managing Editor Daniel Klaidman stated the following about the editorial choice:

Since [Sarah Palin] has been on the national stage, there have been these questions about her gravitas and her seriousness. Sarah Palin has cultivated this image of a down-home, folksy, outdoorsy woman. And I'm not suggesting it's not authentic, but there is a sense in which she understands that it resonates politically. There are a lot of people who would see that image and say 'that's Sarah Palin, that's why she connects with people, there's that authenticity.' I don't think this is an image that is taken out of context, especially when you consider what the point of the story was: to raise these questions about her seriousness.

According to the Huffington Post, Sarah Palin's criticisms of the cover photo as posted on her FaceBook page reads:

The choice of photo for the cover of this week's Newsweek is unfortunate. When it comes to Sarah Palin, this "news" magazine has relished focusing on the irrelevant rather than the relevant. The Runner's World magazine one-page profile for which this photo was taken was all about health and fitness - a subject to which I am devoted and which is critically important to this nation. The out-of-context Newsweek approach is sexist and oh-so-expected by now. If anyone can learn anything from it: it shows why you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, gender, or color of skin. The media will do anything to draw attention - even if out of context.

Personally, I don't think that the Newsweek Palin cover was appropriate. While it is okay to question the seriousness of any politician, photographs that were taken for one purpose should not be used for another without the permission of the individual. Perhaps if Newsweek would have approached Sarah and told her about their cover and explained what they wanted to portray, she could have worked with them to find a better solution.

It's okay to not like Sarah Palin, although I don't see how you couldn't like her. She's down-to-earth, and isn't about politics as usual. She's pro-life and pro-gun, and comes from a very "normal" American background. Although I will never understand why she stepped down as Alaskan Governor (that hurt her credibility), she's still an admirable female presence in American politics.
