Private: Anorexia: another thing to blame on the damned liberals

Now the U.K. papers are reporting on Myrna Blyth’s memoir. In my opinion, the author of any book claiming in 2004 that there’s a liberal bias in any sector of U.S. publishing must have her head up her ass, but evidently that’s just me.

Packaged as an expose on women’s magazine publishing in the States, the book reportedly conflates liberalism and anorexia. Maybe Blyth should revisit the definition of “liberal.” (The first definition is the 20th Century one with which I am familiar and with which I identify; Guardian link via Gawker.)
