Fernando,
Wow – having both a journalism background and friends all over, I’m quite aware of the US socio-political media spin…….but seeing it in the format you’ve laid out is shocking.
Thanks for the reality check….I guess a picture is worth a thousand silenced words.

Looks like a case of ‘know your market’ to me.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Without doubt some magazines will run the same edition with different covers in different places. The economist does this; they seldom put a UK domestic policy cover on their international editions (i’ve been caught out with that one when travelling).

However, this one felt kind of interesting because the Afghan cover *should* be relevant to the US domestic market (war on terror, etc).

Interestingly, I posted this on a certain Christian forum and someone replied saying the person on the international cover did not look like a taliban fighter. Very telling.
