The Huffington Post’s media vertical (don’t you love when we talk nerdy to you?) tips us off to a breezy, quote-heavy article (“quoticle”?) about would-be first daughter Meghan McCain in this month’s Glamour. Writer E.A. Hanks (who knows a thing or two about having a well-connected father) quotes the feisty, Hills-star-befriending Ms. McCain on her choice in men:
While straight male journalists the nation over recover from that snub (and contemplate how the entire McCain family is breaking their hearts), let’s look back at a time—not so long ago—when Ms. McCain was friendlier with members of the fourth estate. A lot friendlier.
In March, GQ‘s Greg Veis profiled the 23-year-old Ms. McCain and wrote the following:
A little later in the piece, Ms. McCain points to an unusual skull clock and asks Mr. Veis, “You like it, right?… Because I told my friends I’d throw it away if the GQ guy didn’t like it.”
In the same piece, Ms. McCain admits she used to want to be a journalist, and even interned at Newsweek. Maybe all that exposure to the real world of working hacks is why she doesn’t want to cozy up to male journalists anytime soon.
So, what’s her dad’s excuse?
