      Most people don't realize that it's always been a RW rag posing as a serious mag. The Luces were doing this way before the Kochs were born.

        was the national editor at Time during the Kennedy-Nixon election.  At Time known as the "house liberal," he was publicly thanked by Henry Luce following the election for the magazine's even-handed coverage of the race...then was moved over to become foreign editor.  Luce's gratitude did not extend all that far.  Time, Inc. at that time actually had a number of noted journalists on staff.

        Henry and Clare Boothe Luce were certainly conservatives, but much more so in a class-conscious sort of way than today's weirdly greed+religion sort.  They were the type that hated FDR because he was a class "traitor" rather than because somewhere a poor person became slightly better off.
