But Drudge isn't alone. Other news outlets had their own theories on People's intentions behind the cover. The Washington Free Beacon wondered if the cover was a "subtle attack" on Clinton.

The Wall Street Journal even had a piece confirming that the object in question was NOT a walker, which received quite a bit of backlash.
