L.A. the Blog: Time Cover of Julian Assange, Gagged

“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.” – John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Oh yeah didn’t we assassinate that guy?  The Time Magazine cover of Julian Assange that makes a strong statement about the state of our country (if you are interested in reading what Time wrote click here and here).

With Time the only news magazine on the shelf at the checkout counters of Pavilions Grocery store in West Hollywood, tucked in the bottom shelf hiding and the tabloids taking center stage at top, its placement makes a stronger statement about what type of information our nation values.

Sadly we prefer the lies of tabloids to the truth of news.


The Time Magazine cover of Julian Assange. The only news magazine at the grocery store checkout stand, hiding almost unseen on the bottom shelf with the tabloids and fashions magazines dominating the display.
