There was a failed Time Warner boycott in 1992 after the song “Cop Killer” by rapper Ice-T was released. Many groups and organizations called for a boycott against the company which distributed the song. They wanted to boycott all Time Warner products including all of their magazines and publications. This effort failed however, as the company did not decline in any of their sales. Media experts say this illustrated how difficult it is to successfully target a faceless corporation whose products are not clearly identified as being their own.
In 1999 Time Asia published an article claiming that former Indonesian President Suharto had transferred stolen money abroad. Suharto sued them, seeking more than $27 billion for libel. In 2007 the Indonesian Supreme Court awarded Suharto the damages, ordering the company pay him 1 trillion rupiah which is equivalent to approximately $104 million.
Earlier this year Time came out with a cover displaying a mother breast-feeding her almost 4-year-old son. This issue became a huge controversy, as many people believe Time had intended it to. However, because the child shown on the cover was, in many people’s opinion, too old to be breastfed, the controversy was much bigger than just whether or not you agreed with breastfeeding.

If anything it got them more publicity, which may have been what they were after anyway. Controversies Continued...
