Newsweek's Bachmann Cover Causes Stir

Ad Feedback

The latest cover of Newsweek magazine featuring Republican presidential candidate and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann is raising eyebrows.

The front page shows a wide-eyed Bachmann accompanied by the headline, "The Queen of Rage."

Many conservatives are angry about the cover, saying Newsweek made Bachmann look crazy and it's another example of the left-leaning mainstream media.

"Can anyone really say with a straight face that the mainstream media is not totally biased against conservatives?" one blogger wrote.

Some are even accusing the magazine of sexism.

"Under the editorial control of Tina Brown, the rice paper magazine barely struggles against its bias towards conservative women to view them with anything other than contempt," Tea Party activist and CNN contributor Dana Loesch said on Andrew Breitbart's website "Big Journalism."

Fox News' Monica Crowley added that the cover shows Newsweek's, "special kind of loathing for women conservatives."

Newsweek editor-in-chief Tina Brown responded to the criticism saying, "Michele Bachmann's intensity is galvanizing voters in Iowa right now and Newsweek's cover captures that."

At a campaign stop in Iowa this week a voter asked Bachmann about the cover, but the GOP hopeful said she had not seen it.
