‘Going Rogue’ No. 1, but not for everyone

With “Going Rogue: An American Life,” Sarah Palin has taken on thoseshe thinks destroyed her chance to be vice president — from the mediato John McCain’s advisers — and in the process risen to the top of thecharts.<br />

Sarah Palin called News-week’s use of a Runner’s World magazine photograph showing her posing in joggering gear on its cover this week “sexist and oh-so expected.”

The shot, taken when Palin was still Alaska’s governor, shows her wearing short running shorts and holding two Blackberry phones, with the American flag splayed on a chair next to her.

Newsweek editor Jon Meacham insisted yesterday that Palin’s claims were wrong.

“We chose the most interesting image available to us to illustrate the theme of the cover, which is what we always try to do,” Meacham told the Huffington Post. “We apply the same test to photographs of any public figure, male or female: Does the image convey what we are saying? That is a gender-neutral standard.”
