Princess Diana Newsweek Cover

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: Newsweek has become its own headline after Photoshopping its newest cover with an image of Princess Diana as she might look upon her 50th birthday this Friday, June 30, 2011. The accompanying editorial feature is a hypothetical work of fiction that imagines what life for Diana would be like had she not died in a tragic 1997 car crash in Paris. Editor Tina Brown is getting criticism from several outlets for the controversial cover story. The London Telegraph called it, "Ghoulish" and dubbed Brown "Newsweek's grave-robber." Brown, who is British, was the former editor of the New Yorker and founded the Daily Beast. In defense of her cover story, Brown said, "I wanted to make her a time traveler... she would have been very much a woman of our time." But if social networks such as Twitter are any indication, Brown is not being let off the hook. Twitter has exploded with criticisms for Newsweek's article, with comments calling Diana's fictional resurrection "undead" and "zombifying."
