Wired and Women

Interesting discussion of Wired‘s breast coverage at Poynter. I’m struck by how similar the issues are to those that have long plagued Rolling Stone: a magazine that’s supposed to be about a topic (music/tech) but has instead (d)evolved into a men’s magazine, and is therefore terrible in its coverage of women. I really appreciate Cindy Royal’s expose, so to speak, of this issue, and Rachel Sklar’s important work as well. And I also praise Wired for the important story on generative tissue advances that is somewhat lost in the controversy. That, Rolling Stone would probably still not do.
