Best and Worst Mag Covers 2008

MinOnline :: Media Bistro Top Story 1: "In recent memory, there were four major news events that brought a run on the newsstand: (1) Oklahoma City bombing (1995); (2) Princess Diana's death (1997); (3) John F. Kennedy, Jr.'s death (1999); and (4) the September 11, 2001, attacks. November 4, 2008, election of President Barack Obama joined that 'club,' with nonperennial best-or second-best-sellers from Newsweek/Time/People/The New Yorker/Rolling Stone and, from Canada, Maclean's. History was made in a happy way, which separates Obama from the four tragedies. For the record... TNY's classic O cover (November 17) fell just short of the newsstand sales generated from July 21's Barry Blitt-drawn satire, which brought controversy (min, July 21, 2008). But it was O that made history."
