Has Vanity Fair Killed Its Gwyneth Paltrow Expose?

Printemps Christmas Decorations Inauguration In Paris
Ugh, this will be the worst Christmas ever if what Rob Shuter reports is true.

We're all aware that Vanity Fair is cooking up something saucy about Gwyneth Paltrow after she refused to be featured in an interview; The Oscar winner allegedly didn't appreciate the "unflattering" manner in which Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise were portrayed.

VF's editor-in-chief Graydon Carter told the Sunday Times this fall that a piece will run, with or without Paltrow's participation.

"We started a story on her. We have a very good writer and it’ll run," he said.  "We wouldn't be doing our job if there wasn't a little bit of tension between Vanity Fair and its subjects.  In any given week, I can expect to hear from a disgruntled subject in Hollywood, Washington, or on Wall Street. That's the nature of the beast."

Today, Shuter posted on his site that the January issue is about to drop, but there are no signs of an expose on Paltrow.

    Been a VF subscriber for nigh on 20 yrs now, but it's lost its cred in my eyes. And I may not renew next time.__Why? Too much emphasis on sex, murder & financial scandals, and not near enough on the REAL scandals most of us are suffering from (such as banking & big-agra subsidies, malicious treatment of the poor, destruction of the middle class, how Silicon Vallley tech disruptors are killing the economy, and how AynRand-libertarianism & Reganomics - the ideologies dominating this nation's thought, politics & economics for 30+ years - have corrupted America & ruined our society).__Instead of vilifying greedy billionaires and selfish, self-serving venture / vulture capitalists, banksters, techsters and media & entertainment moguls VF adores them, idolizes them, and flatters them each year with its New Establishment Power List.__And somewhere in the last couple years, VF gave up on real investigative and adversarial journalism. Sad, because we REALLY need that kind of reporting now.
