The “Madam President” edition was quickly recalled following Clinton’s loss, but many copies of it are for sale on eBay and at least one is fetching bids of $200.Why couldn't it be both?
Newsweek editor-in-chief Jim Impoco said he was caught off guard by the cover when he spotted it on social media. During an appearance on the Media Masters podcast released Thursday, Impoco described the pre-produced cover as a “routine” product in the publishing industry.
“Yet in this toxic brew of electoral politics in America, it became a thing, it went viral,” Impoco said.
Prior to the election, Impoco said the cover was being used by supporters of then-Republican candidate Donald Trump as evidence that the election was “rigged.” Following Trump’s victory, Impoco now says the cover is being held up as an example of what some believe to be Newsweek’s incompetence in covering the race.
“I actually preferred the ‘it’s rigged’ argument to the ‘boy are they dumb’ argument,” he said.
