TIME censors stories for US markets

Still think we live in a free society. We're no more informed than the people of China on world events- because the Media CEOs don't want people to be aware of the world.

They're not censoring... they dumb it down for us.

Waitress: Morning!

Man: Well, what've you got?

Waitress: Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...

Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...

Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!

Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.

Wife: Have you got anything without spam?

Waitress: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.

Wife: I don't want ANY spam!

Man: Why can't she have egg bacon spam and sausage?

Wife: THAT'S got spam in it!

Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam... (Crescendo through next few lines...)

Wife: Could you do the egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam then?

Waitress: Urgghh!

Wife: What do you mean 'Urgghh'? I don't like spam!

Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up!

Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up! (Vikings stop) Bloody Vikings! You can't have egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam.

Man: Sshh, dear, don't cause a fuss. I'll have your spam. I love it. I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam!

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up!! Baked beans are off.

Man: Well could I have her spam instead of the baked beans then?

Waitress: You mean spam spam spam spam spam spam... (but it is too late and the Vikings drown her words)

Vikings: (Singing elaborately...) Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam! Spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam. Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Spam spam spam spam!

This is very bad. Who is telling them to do it? Who is pulling the cover strings?

R5, do you really have to ask?

This article is many years old. We had a thread about it ages ago. Also, it is the cover that is changed, not the articles.

by Anonymousreply 705/19/2014

Since not everyone on here is a Crypt Keeper who has been around for ages there is no reason not to discuss it now.

The cover change is objectionable, it caters to self absorbed Americans.

If you are turning to Time magazine so to be aware of the world, then you get what you deserve.

by Anonymousreply 905/19/2014

Forty years ago TIME magazine was packed with long articles in small print. Today it's full of pictures and graphics and large print. It looks like an elementary school version of its former self.

And like all other Mainstream Media sources, it's a propaganda megaphone for the ruling class that only poses as objective journalism.

by Anonymousreply 1005/19/2014

I wonder what the future of media and news journalism is, considering the internet and stuff.

Does it really have large print now? I haven't seen a print copy of Time in years. I thought the trend was toward smaller print and cheaper, thinner paper since the newspaper/magazine industry is heading down the tubes. I thought that my middle-aged eyesight was just getting poor, but I began to notice letters to the editor from people complaining about the shrinking print.
