American magazines indicted

Heather Mallick is sickened by U.S. magazines:

I bought Vanity Fair to read its hatchet job on Canadian-born magazine editor Bonnie Fuller for taking American magazines downmarket and ended up admiring Ms. Fuller. Anyone who can find a way to grab a dumber market than the one she already reaches gets my vote. What horrified me was not Ms. Fuller, but Vanity Fair itself, loaded with filthy lucre-porn photo shoots of pale, loitering “actors.” They sought the languorous look; what they achieved looked more like rigor mortis. I suppose they were simply sedated. Which is nice.
