People magazine’s June 27, 2016 cover is a welcome approach to covering the appalling hate crime/mass murder in Orlando this week.

Rather then focusing on the terrorist or his despicable deed and the horrific carnage, People gives us something positive to focus on:  the human beings whose lives were stolen.  Better to glorify the victims, not the hater.

Too often, in the aftermath of these outrageous mass murders, all we get is an overdose of details about the terrorist’s life, and what might have caused him to act out.  Then we get the political spin from the pro & con gun control professionals. And inevitably arguments about immigration.  So tiresome, so boring, and so missing the mark.

Anderson Cooper of CNN did a moving tribute to the victims too.  He read out their names, one by one, with little details about their lives…incredibly powerful.

This morning I was sent a link that calls out 5 magazine covers, as the 5 Most Egregious Covers of 2016 (so far). 

I prefer to point out and praise covers that work.  But I thought this was worth sharing.

The writer does point to a cover of Chicago Magazine that he likes.

Humm...seems very familiar to a recent Toronto Life cover.  Now that’s “egregious.”  You be the judge.

The Jul/Aug 2016 issue of Canadian Real Estate Wealth goes on sale June 20.

The Vacation Properties theme has been used in the past, and it always performs well.

This year’s cover features a very bold type treatment for the main sell.
