In the News Magazines

by Bill Hayes

This week, several interesting articles appear in the weekly news magazines.

In Newsweek:

The focus is on Egypt. Harvard’s Niall Ferguson writes the cover story How Obama Blew It (an opinion piece, in case you didn’t notice). The Facebook Freedom Fighter tells about one man’s efforts to use social media in the uprising. And The Tragedy of Mubarak is a long feature on the deposed leader.

In Time:

The cover story by Lev Grossman titled Singularity focuses on technological progress on artificial intelligence and life extension.

Articles on Egypt include Revolution, Delayed and How the U.S. Should Support Middle East Reform (an opinion piece by Joe Klein).

In the Shadows profiles counterterrorism czar John Brennan.
