OUTTAKES THE SEQUEL

When we heard that "Broadcast News" had bumped Arnold Schwarzenegger from last week's Newsweek cover because editors were turned off by "Running Man" and what they perceived as its Cro-Magnon audience, we had to check it out. Tom Mathews, senior arts editor, swears the two were never head-to-head: " 'Broadcast News' is just one of the best pictures around--it never had any serious competition."

Mathews said that Arnold and Tri-Star's futuristic action-adventure were among cover candidates in November. But: "He just didn't come out with the gold prize. I think 'Running Man' was unusual and Schwarzenegger has developed in such an interesting way. But in the end, we decided he just isn't ready for a cover."

He did get the consolation prize--an inside spot.
