Be open to hear the other side of the story! Written by the former editor of Ladies Home Journal,who admits she was part of the problem, she gives the inside scoop why we have to watch bad TV (my husband had already banned me from watching the "Lifetime" channel)and why magazines have the same cover stories month after month.
The author must think that the women of America are pretty stupid, and that we believe everything we see on television and read in glossy magazines. This was written before reality TV took over prime-time entertainment, and she is right about how the entertainment industry crafts things to look better (or worse) than they really are and then pretends that their creations are "real." But her argument that this has anything to do with liberalism and an anti-child feminist agenda just wasn't convincing.
