TIME Defends Christie Cover

TIME Executive Editor Michael Duffy
has defended the magazine’s recent cover, which includes a
silhouetted photo of Christie (who was re-elected as New Jersey’s
governor on Tuesday) and the caption “Elephant in the Room.”

From NJ.com:

Time Magazine Executive Editor Michael Duffy took to the
airwaves last night to defend his magazine’s most recent cover,
which has sparked outrage this week for its thinly veiled shot at
Gov. Chris Christie’s weight.

The cover features a silhouetted photo of the governor
beside the caption “Elephant in the Room.” After the cover was
revealed yesterday, the Twittersphere erupted with condemnation for
the magazine.

“Whether or not one likes Christie, these cheap shots–like
Time’s new cover–about his weight are decidedly uncool,” tweeted
New York Times reporter Steven Greenhouse.
