Once upon a time the Spiegel was dubbed the "assault gun of Democracy". Nowadays there's not much difference to other magazines. Their latest cover "STOPPT PUTIN JETZT!" was a disgrace to what the Spiegel should stand for. Cold War style media coverage depicting Heads of States as some sort of Super Villain doesn't help at all. Tried to make it more obvious with this alternative cover featuring Putin as Blofeld, James Bond's main Antagonist.
