WaPo Journo Sneers at Vanity Fair

adam-and-eve-in-the-creation-museum-monica-lam-2007.jpgWaPo’s Ian Shapira takes issue with magazines such as Vanity Fair coming into his home state of Kentucky and writing “glib” stories on it. He complains about the annual stories in May when outsider scribes come in and write on “the exotic Derby hats worn by well-heeled ladies at Churchill Downs.”

Today he strikes out at the “flashy” glossy for its “thinly reported” review of Kentucky’s Creation Museum by A. A. Gill, a contributing writer to the magazine as well as to The Sunday Times of London.
