Sarah Palin Runners World Scandal

So I like to keep my blog far away from politics, but this is really about running! The cover of Newsweek features Sarah Palin in running gear and as soon as I saw it I thought - hmm wasn't she in Runner's World recently wearing something similar? Well she was and apparently the Newsweek cover photo was under embargo for a year and should NOT have been used for that cover shot... here's the "I'm a runner" interview from August and the associated Editor's note about the cover photo:



On the cover of this week’s issue of Newsweek is a photo that was shot exclusively for the August 2009 issue of Runner’s World, in which Sarah Palin was featured on the monthly “I’m a Runner” back page. The photos from that shoot are still under a one-year embargo, and Runner’s World did not provideNewsweek with its cover image. It was provided toNewsweek by the photographer’s stock agency, without Runner’s World’s knowledge or permission.
