Newsweek Has A Very Pointed Post-Election Message For The GOP

In October, Newsweek announced that it will be moving to an all-digital format in 2013. That means that this post-election issue aside, there is only one print issue left.

With its history of iconic and controversial covers, Newsweek unsurprisingly went for a less-than-conventional cover.

The cover depicts President Obama as Napoleon Bonaparte victorious after a battle with the headline “The Obama Conquest.”

Their message to the GOP? “You’re old, you’re white, you’re history!”

Not very becoming of a prominent publication…
