Accuracy in Media

Teen Vogue announced yesterday that Hillary Clinton is the guest editor of one of its last print editions, which will be available on newsstands December 5.

“Have you ever noticed that whenever a teenage girl takes a stand on an important issue, people seem surprised?” Clinton wrote in a letter from her and editor Elaine Weltroth.

“That’s why, when the brilliant Elaine Welteroth invited me to edit this issue, I jumped at the chance. Teen Vogue takes teen girls seriously and understands that style and substance aren’t mutually exclusive. I love seeing articles about the search for the perfect makeup remover next to essays about running for office (I have strong opinions on both topics, but we’ll get to that later). Teen girls are a powerful force for good in the world, and it’s refreshing to see that reflected in these pages.”

Clinton went on to say how the letters she received after the election helped pick her up and keep her going and how “this issue is a celebration of resistance and resilience.”

The issue features a letter from Clinton to her teenage self in which she covers her time at Wellesley, her marriage to her “tall handsome boyfriend” and how she will take the stage in Philadelphia in 2016 to accept the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.

“Some will say it’s too partisan, too political, too retrospective, too ‘echo-chamber-y,'”  Weltroth wrote in her part of the letter from the editor. “This issue isn’t for them. It was designed for the millions who acknowledge that until women, girls, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and the economically disadvantaged are on an equal playing field, we must hold space for these critical conversations.”

Conde Nast announced last week that Teen Vogue would end its 13-year print run while continuing its digital presence.

    How easily Teen Vogue shows its corrupt nature and how harmfull they are to young minds

  • Mike S.

    A bunch of losers following the supreme Loser. In my world, brains trump vaginas regardless of gender. Teen Vogue is doing to young girls’ minds what feminists claimed TV (and Barbie dolls) did for girls’ self images. Of course, if lunacy supports Marxism, then it’s all good as our vacuous children say these days. (Who’s picture is that in the last post? To be mean and to make no apology, we all know Hillarious never was a looker.)
