Via Zero Hedge, Time's covers around the world this week. Spot the outlier
I am actually sympathetic to the case that the NCAA should allow student athletes to make money as athletes (just as student business majors are allowed to make money in business and student musicians are allowed to make money in music).
But seriously? Probably the highest profile, most contentious international diplomatic crisis of the last five years and Time chose not to put it on the cover this week? There are only two explanations, and neither are good. 1) Time felt that a story about American mis-steps might hurt sales. or 2) Time is protecting their guy in the White House. The athlete cover story does not have an expiration date, so is the kind of story a magazine holds for a slow week. It is hard to describe last week as a "slow week."
