Teen Vogue, the young-slut themed leftist propaganda outlet run by an angry gay man that notoriously encouraged teenage girls to take it up the poop chute has been shut down by its publisher.

  1. Conde Nast is the highly regarded name of a long-vanished publisher of high fashion travel, society, trends and style. But that was in the thirties to mid-50’s era.

    Samuel Irving “S.I.” Newhouse Jr. accumulated magazines and set about buying up as many highly regarded publications as possible. He collected magazines and he financed them for his pleasure. Vogue was a particular coup for Newhouse who essentially treated it as a trinket for his wife’s amusement.

    I am most familiar with the relentlessness of “S.I.” Newhouse in acquiring The New Yorker. He paid $180 million for a highly venerated, but collapsing publication. Newhouse put Robert Gottleib in the editor’s seat at The New Yorker in 1987. Newhouse poured millions into keeping the magazine afloat and, finally, Newhouse decided he owned the name, so he would change the magazine. He unleashed Tina Brown and the rest is history. After Tina Brown relandscaped the New Yorker as the mouthpiece for Manhattan liberalism, Newhouse brought in David Remnick to polish the Progressive turd and Remnick has been editor since 1998. As a Progressive journal of leftist psychobabble, The New Yorker has all but divorced itself from much of anything that predominated in the pre-Newhouse years.

    The New Yorker, like the rest of Conde Nast (Newhouse) stable is ideologically driven by a Dr. Seuss Zoo of editors who see themselves as the movers and shakers of the zeitgeist; they do not see themselves as analysts of the zeitgeist.

    Vogue has become as useless as anyone can imagine. Ditto Vanity Fair, which Newhouse resurrected to please his wife. Ditto The New Yorker.

    Manhattan is divided between the “right sort of people” and everyone else. The right people drive the “culture” and they support their whims. Vogue, The New Yorker and Vanity Fair under Newhouse are the restricted terrain for snarky and judgmental Progressivism.

    Samuel Irving “S.I.” Newhouse Jr. died last month at age 89. His net worth was reputed to be in excess of $12 Billion. He collected art. He collected magazines. He promoted his quirks and fantasies.

    This is a terrible age for magazines. I suspect that the Conde Nast empire will fade away and the heirs will begin the process of depleting the fortune until they have become little more than social-set nags who can only lay claim to their lineage.

    Françoise Mouly has been the art editor at The New Yorker since Tina Brown brought her in to do shock therapy on the magazine in 1993. She is married to the creator of the prize-winning graphic novel Maus, Art Spiegelman.

    If there is future for Progressive journalism, Rolling Stone, the Village Voice, Mother Jones, Slate and much of the Conde Nast stable is not proving its viability.

    “S.I.” Newhouse’s deep pockets are no longer available for keeping his trinkets polished and on the newsstands.

    Seriously, why would the casual browser pick up any magazine at $8 to $14 on a whim? In the old days, people were at the newsstands the day their favorite magazine appeared and the newsstands sold stacks of them. The original New Yorker could support itself on newsstand sales alone. Their huge, nationwide subscriber base was pure gravy.

    The passing of “S.I.” Newhouse pretty much closes the book on Progressive slick magazines full of elitist horse manure. But, the Progressive cult can do just fine without their snark artists telling them how to hate.

    The other day, Clarence Thomas told his former intern, Laura Ingraham, “I think we’re getting quite comfortable in our society limiting ideas and exposure to ideas.”

    Justice Thomas said people seem to think everything has to be “one size fits all,” and others shouldn’t have opinions or ideas that make them uncomfortable.

    “We always talk about ‘E Pluribus Unum,’ what’s our ‘Unum’ now?”

    Short version: We have destroyed what brings us together, so divided we march to different drummers.

    Teen Vogue was for young “society girls” when there was such a thing as “society.” But social justice warriorism is nothing if not a constant war on unity.

  4. The online version lives on so it’s not really shutting down.

  5. In other news, Guy Benson posted a screenshot of Milo’s newest article, entitled “A Round of Applause for Kevin Spacey,” and said he refused to link to such a disgusting article. Within two paragraphs, Milo thoroughly excoriates Spacey for his actions, and the round of applause is a mocking one for Spacey’s attempt to deflect criticism with his coming out, which Milo says illustrates the problems with identity politics and the equation of minority=good.

    Several people tweeted at Guy pointing this out. Guy then backpedaled and said that Milo shouldn’t have given the article such a provocative title (since when has Milo’s articles not had provocative titles to entice people to read it?), and basically implied that the unfortunate business about Milo’s inarticulate comments about age-of-consent laws and his jokes about his own abuse (which Milo brought up and apologized for yet again in the body of the article) somehow disqualified him from commenting on Spacey. Why the misrepresentation?

    Interesting that Guy (and Ben Shapiro, for that matter) are still grinding an axe about Milo almost a year after the election. Why? I could be catty and say that Guy’s still butthurt that Rubio’s campaign imploded (seriously, Guy’s crush on Rubio was visible from outer space) and Milo gave a big, fabulous “I TOLD YOU SO” after Trump won. But could it be some sort of homocon respectability politics thing? Guy is straight-laced and pretty normal. Milo is anything but. Does Guy object to Milo playing up gay stereotypes as part of his persona? Does he think that gays that identify as right-of-center have to be behaviorally indistinguishable from straight people? What next, is Guy going to say that no “true” gay conservative can confess to enjoying The Rocky Horror Picture Show?
