Yes, what you see is TIME devoting its cover in international markets to a critical moment in Egypt’s revolution – perhaps the most important global story this week – while offering Americans the chance to contemplate their collective navels. Read more via Daily Kos.

This is nearly two years old and we covered it heavily at the time. Here’s this week’s actual edition:

All four editions are about MLK—a fairly hefty subject of its own—and to be fair, the peak of the Egypt news this week likely missed their deadline.

Laura Lang’s Memo to Staff

newsweek:

Departing Time Inc. CEO Laura Lang sent this memo to staff in regards to the publishing company’s spinning-off into an independent, publicly-traded company.

Today’s news that Time Warner plans to spin off Time Inc. is something that everyone is just beginning to digest. While there are many questions that can only be answered in time, one thing is already clear: the hard work we have done over the past year in maintaining our core business while at the same time becoming more digitally focused has positioned the company well. Time Inc. has incredible talent and great brands that will continue to lead our industry.

The planned spin-off has also made me reflect on what is the best path for me and the company going forward.  After considerable thought, I have decided that taking the company through a transition to the public markets is not where my passion lies. Jeff has been extremely supportive and I am committed to working together with him on recruiting the right person to lead Time Inc. at the spin. 

I want to thank all of you for your support over the past year.  You welcomed me warmly and jumped in enthusiastically as we charted a course. I look forward to working with you as we continue to make progress.

LL

Oh, and in case you want to see an alternate-reality take on the Andrew Mason, where the departing CEO holds back and skips the Battletoads references, here you go.

In case Time’s Person of the Year made you feel a bit cynical, Quartz has you covered with a nice antidote. “While Time, the popularizers of the person of the year concept, is right that the president dominated 2012, it’s worth remembering this: His term has largely been defined by his efforts to rescue corporations from themselves, and their attempts to fight his policy agenda,” they exclaim.

swagandpassion says: I'm glad Obama is person of the year, but what clout does TIME have? Is this the social/political version of the most beautiful person in the world? Or can Obama say being chosen is a referendum of himself and his overall administration?

» SFB says: Well, Hitler once won the award, so I wouldn’t necessarily call it an award for the “most beautiful” — probably more of the “most important,” good or bad. Obama won a second term, so it was probably a referendum on his work. — Ernie @ SFB
