Cover Battle: New York Times Magazine or V


Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This round features The New York Times Magazine taking on V.

For its Innovations issue, the Times Mag went with a crumpled piece of paper with “In praise of Failure” written on it. It appears failing is a good tactic. High school would’ve been a lot easier if our teachers had known that.


V magazine, meanwhile, features Nicki Minaj in a valiant attempt to make the beret cool. Please, no one tell Carmelo Anthony.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
