Adoring magazine publishers give first lady Michelle Obama $9 million gift

Being the object of adoration — in pop culture and the media — certainly comes with nice benefits.

How nice? Try $9 million.

The top four magazine publishers gave first lady Michelle Obama a donation of $9 million in public service ads in the magazines they produce, according to the New York Post.


The companies — Hearst, Condé Nast, Time Inc. and Meredith — made the generous offer in support of the Obama’s administration’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative that kicked off last year, the newspaper noted.

The U.S. government-led enterprise is a lofty effort to ensure adolescent girls around the world — the White House cites 62 million in all — get the education they deserve.

Obama participated in a conference Tuesday in New York, sponsored by the Association of Magazine Media, to push the initiative, along with actresses Lena Dunham and Julianne Moore.

Of course, if the first lady is truly motivated to “let girls learn,” the first thing she should teach them is not to be like Dunham, the self-described vile sexual molester.

There’s no telling what Dunham might teach girls if given the chance, based on the shocking things she’s focused on.

“Sixty-two million girls today are not in school and the results are devastating,” Obama said Tuesday. “We have to push past the doubters. When we succeed, we have to reach back and help others.”

… with U.S. taxpayer dollars.
