Time Takes on the Mommy Wars (Again)

Joe Berger took on Time Magazine in an interesting blog post called “Dear Time Magazine: Seriously?” He questions that appropriateness of using an edgy photo (the almost-four-year-old boy standing on a chair breastfeeding, with the cover line “Are you Mom Enough?”). Joe’s points were first, it isn’t news; second, it attempts to re-ignite the Mommy Wars to no one’s benefit; and third, this is the business of the mother, not the business of Time Magazine or its readers.

He makes a great point about the responsibility of the media, not just to jump on every bandwagon for every sale they can get but also to give some thought to what they are saying and selling.

Now its up to the newsstand readers to let us know what they think.
