One gets the love from Oprah. The other gets the hate from Gawker. One gets NPR interviews. The other gets Gmail chats posted on Tumblr. One supposedly knows middle class. The other supposedly knows about shoplifting. Either way, this cover with Tao Lin is pretty sharp. And it's a spoof off of this cover, for those that don't happen to read newsweeklies, which is mostly everyone.

Read Tao's piece here in Seattle's The Stranger if you're interested. And here's the Franzen article.

We're fair and balanced.
