Time : No, We Didn't Give Hillary Horns
Here's the cover.   (Time)

If you weren't sure the media was obsessed with Hillary Clinton, reaction to the new Time cover might cinch things. The silhouette appears to give Clinton horns, and political reporters quickly spotted it and began tweeting in earnest, reports Politico. Turns out, it was "entirely coincidental," explains Time, a quirk of the placement of her head against the letter M. To prove it, the magazine presented a slideshow of 34 other covers with the same effect, a collection that includes Bill Clinton and even Jesus. (More Time magazine stories.)
