Time is published by Time Warner. It's editor Richard Stengel is a graduate of Oxford and Princeton, and was president of the National Constitution Center, funded by and housing the Annenberg Center. Senior Political Editor Mark Halperin has admitted a pro-Obama tilt, here: http://babalublog.com/2012/08/19/pro-obama-media-bias-confirmed-by-time-magazine?s-senior-political-editor/ . I think Time used to try to play middle-of-the road (I found it so in the 70's), but for several years has been tilting left. This opinion seems to agree with a recent survey of public opinions on tilt, that Time is only slightly left-tilted, compared with Newsweek, while USNews&WorldReport is seen as slightly to the right.
