^Agreed. Wintour and the management team's handling of the Asma al-Assad was absolutely disgraceful. They threw the Joan Juliet Buck under the bus, and attempted to wash their hands clean of the matter.
In addition, Vogue's "political pieces" are mostly fluff articles that always paints the subject in a positive light.
While Anna Wintour may be good at backroom politics and maneuverings, I am doubtful of her skill and knowledge in the arena of international relations and policy. As Joan Juliet Buck wrote in her article on the Vogue treatment of her Al-Assad piece:
I handed in the piece on Jan. 14, the day President Ben Ali fled Tunisia. “The Arab Spring is spreading,” I told Vogue on Jan. 21. “You might want to hold the piece.”
They didn’t think the Arab Spring was going anywhere
, and the piece was needed for the March “Power Issue.”
Curiosity killed the cat...
But satisfaction brought it back
