Don't tell the emperor's subjects...

Nice catch for WhatReallyHappened, exposing the differences in treatment of information between the USA and the rest of the world. Newsweek got caught softening the harsh reality of the war in Afghanistan for the US public, swapping its 'losing Afghanistan' cover for an innocentish 'My life in picture'.

The latter relates to "our most famous photographer" Annie Leibowitz. Photographing a celebrity photographer while the Middle East is on fire... How cute.
