While the Time featured America's first African-American president on its cover a whopping 13 times, Newsweek showed him 11 times.
"Obama has become a one-man stimulus media package," the New York Post quoted author Michael Levine as telling Page Six.
But, despite being on the cover of Rolling Stone four times last year, the magazine's bestseller was its July 20 issue with the American boy band Jonas Brothers.

Vogue's November issue with actress Reese Witherspoon also fared best, while October issue with Rachel Weisz did worst. (ANI)
