Lindsay Lohan's Diet Tips

As everyone continues to grouse about the major media muck-up with the miner disaster in West Virginia, I was struck this morning by another screwed up headline.

Check it. First, here's the cover of the new Vanity Fair, featuring a slightly healthier looking Lindsay Lohan, barely clothed and speckled like a robin egg.

In the issue, Lohan comes out on her drug use (no shit) and her struggle with bulimia. The article is probably heartfelt and touching, but I'll never read it--that's not the point anyway. There are also pictures. And a picture is worth a thousand words, so really, I come out ahead. Check your math.

Anyway, that Vanity Fair comes out this week. The same week as this cover of US Weekly hits stands. Note the headline on the upper left.

Yikes. Diet tips? Ouch.

That is bad timing. How dare Vanity Fair come out with something about her terrible problems to obscure US Weekly's diet tips?!? They spent a lot of time on that diagram of the human throat and where to put the finger, and its irresponsible of VF to come along and screw it all up with the "truth". It's yellow journalism and I won't stand for it.

I guess they'll have to move on to Nicole Richie's diet secrets next. Hint: she only consumes Pixie-Sticks and Starbucks.
