I’m sorry but this is pure exploitation

See here. A reader has just alerted me to the fact that Macenstein has a feature called “Mac Chick of the Month.” This month’s winner is actress Mandy Amano, above. Frankly I think it’s just gross and exploitative to use photos of nearly naked women to attract readers. It was disgusting when Wired did it and it’s disgusting now. And I am going to keep hammering away on this issue and running these disgusting photos until something is done about it.

Um, freetards?

Dear friends in the Defective by Design movement: I know you think this poster is going to scare people away from using iPods. I hate to tell you, but I think it’s actually helping sales. In any case I’m not sure it helps your cause to have weirdo losers like this carrying around pictures of women in bondage. Because it’s kind of what we all suspect you freaks secretly fantasize about when you’re sitting around in your pee-stained tighty whities downloading drivers. Right?

(Note to readers: After you click on the photo of the losers, click on the “Original” button at top of page and you’ll get a real closeup of Mr. Scary Goggle Wearing Guy. Don’t do this when there are kids around, though. You’ll scare them.)

I’m sorry but putting hot naked women on the cover is not serious journalism. It’s a cheap ploy to sell copies. This exploitation makes me sick.

Then again you gotta admit, friggin Jenna Fischer is hot, no? When Maxim or one of the other lad mags gets her, I am all over that. Or Playboy. Please God let her do Playboy. Damn you Wired for not having the courage to show beaver!

That said, I find it absolutely disgusting that a serious highbrow intellectual magazine like Wired would resort to this kind of thing just to get attention on the newsstand. Thank goodness for blogs like this one which are picking up the hard work of doing real journalism now that the MSM has slunk into the gutter.
