    ...According to Menefee, TIME managing editor Richard Stengel recently defended the doctoring of the photo and defied the traditional notion that journalists should be unbiased. "He doesn't think journalism should really be objective anyway because he thinks objectivity is a fantasy. That was one of the words he used. So it does show the huge sea change in journalism toward advocacy, especially on this particular issue," Menefee contends.

    At least they are finally being honest about it. I canceled my subscription to TIME a long time ago.

    Everything every written is slanted. The Bible is slanted. Material omitted creates a bigger slant than material included.

    OK....I am just seeking clarification: Has God allowed his Word to be corrupted?

    And "slanted" conveys the message, error/corruption.
