Teen Vogue Selects Its Next Top Editor, the Political Reporter Alexi McCammond
Well thats not suprising.
I’m surprised by the pick because she’s a little controversial. Her boyfriend, T.J. Ducklo, is a former Biden press aide. He threatened a reporter who asked him about his relationship with McCammond and was forced to resign. Also she’s a news reporter and political editor. I guess that means Teen Vogue will continue with it’s political coverage and not have much fashion
“I Will Destroy You”: Biden Aide Threatened a Politico Reporter Pursuing a Story on His Relationship
Wow, they've just announced her appointment and she's already in some controversy? Not a good start.
Considering what a huge role TeenVogue played in Hillary's campaign, I doubt anyone would be shocked. I'm sure their readers will be happy because that website is more about politics than anything else. It's strange to see how they've evolved.
Do they even still do print issues?
Kinda shocked that she got the job right in the heels of her boyfriend's scandal.
I really don't understand CN's plan with turning Teen Vogue into a wannabe political trade. I think it's important for publications to have socially/political consciousness, but they took it way too far, they never found a balance, and it killed the magazine. I mean they were looking like a parody at some point, they would go from sex tips to socialism to Kylie Jenner.
Her boyfriend "resigned" a few weeks ago, so it's more like CN hired her even with the controversy.
If they do print issues, I haven't received any as a subscriber.
It would seem to me that there's space for a publication with heavy political content aimed at teens/younger adults, especially considering the rise in % youth voters in the last election. I would be curious to see how many of their political article views come from someone visiting the website initially in search of more traditional Teen Vogue topics
One thing’s for sure, Condé Nast knows its demographic
and it seems like their editors must also know that demographic and know how to cater to it.
Teen Vogue went George Magazine. They should change its name. It's funny that the main Vogue puts all the young stars that teens admire, and for Teen Vogue they show Hillary Clinton on the cover (the last Issue I remember, hahaha).
I would rather read a textbook on rare autoinmune diseases than Teen Vogue, buying into trendy political discourse is the easiest way to kill any discernment capabilities you once had or could have developed.
Will next cover model be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
That wouldnt be a bad idea at all actually. She does photograph better than most politicians, is very influential politically especiallyt among the youth and does have that approachable sense of style many young people can identify with.
^Kasper was probably being facetious, lol. But I'm with you, she photographs really well and she's gorgeous.
Christ this crossover of fashion and politics/social causes just gets worse and worse.
A very good move-- business-wise.
CN and Anna understand and is taking advantage of the extreme division in the American political landscape to optimize profits. With the younger generation that’s their market, generally the attitude is "you’re either with them, or against them” mentality: There is no bipartisanship and absolutely no moderation on the socio-political support. American politics has become a high school pep rally, with mainstream CNN”s Cuomo and Lemon being the most manipulative, condescending and meanest mean girls leading the cheerleading squad. for the Democrats. CNN has always followed wherever the profits are highest: During the Gulf War when the majority of Americans were unquestionably supportive of Bush, and patriotic to the point of extreme nationalism, CNN was right alongside the majority as Bush’s lapdog. (...Remember when his "You're either with him-- or against him" warcry seemed an absolutely threat to democracy than a declarition of liberation???)
Now CN/Teen Vogue is right there alongside CNN to profit from the Liberal-majority in feeding them what they want. If adults are this easily manipulated by CNN, can you imagine how easy it is to do so with the “teen” demographic (and packaged in a slick sheen of “fashion” to boot) LOOL …
Teen Vogue Staff Rail Against New Editor-in-Chief’s Past Tweets Mocking Asians
Live by the sword, die by the sword.
Though personally, considering the tweets were made when she was a teenager, 10 years ago, I don’t think she’ll get axed over this.
She's very smart and indeed it's a good move. Let's see what she brings to fashion though but she's interesting.
LOL Why am I not the least surprised??? She and her BF totally ooze Regina George entitlement.
(Frankly, her mocking posts of Asians doesn’t come off racist— maybe I just have thick skin… But she’d be the type that had someone tweeted about Black people what she tweeted about Asians, she would be all up in her soapbox faux-raging about racism.)
She’s a terrible pick and I hope CN reconsiders hiring her. She made her Twitter account private and is being attacked by a lot of conservatives for her hypocrisy
I think one of the other additional issues here is that Mccammond has little editing experience. I'm also unaware of the true extent of her knowledge about the fashion and beauty industry.
In my view CN would have been better off getting someone with vast industry knowledge or promoting someone in-house at Teen Vogue who has more editing experience. Allegra Kirkland (current senior political editor at Teen Vogue) should have been looked at for the role.
