‘Cosmo’ Is Going To Get (Even More) Political

From the Politico:

Cosmo editor Joanna Coles makes political push

By PATRICK GAVIN | June 19, 2013

To the growing list of publications trying to get in on the Washington action, add one more: Cosmopolitan magazine.

Cosmopolitan Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles, the magazine’s leader, said Tuesday that she’s already on her fourth trip to Washington this year.

“I really want Cosmo as a magazine to be more involved in political issues,” Coles said at a dinner in her honor at Georgetown’s Cafe Milano. “We’re the biggest read magazine — literally — in the world and I think it’s very important that we stay on top of political issues that impact young women: Health care, gun violence, the wage gap, how do we close it. These are all issues that I’m personally passionate about.”

What a shock, huh? Still, we can see some of their future articles now: ‘How To Have More Fun In Bed, While Avoiding Gun Violence.’ And ‘Six Ways To Spice Up Your Sex Life, Hidden In Obama-Care.’

Coles already has a big fan in the White House; she met with White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett earlier in the day and learned from Jarrett’s assistant that “she gets other magazines sent to her for free, but she always buys Cosmo, which I thought was really nice.”

Coles was joined by full table of women leaders — Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), MSNBC’s Karen Finney, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), POLITICO’s Kim Kingsley, Hearst Magazines’ Holly Whidden, Voto Latino’s Maria Teresa Kumar, Susanna Quinn, Emily’s List Stephanie Schriock and Amy Dacey, Washington Life’s Nancy Bagley and lobbyist Heather Podesta (the event was sponsored by consultants Shari Yost Gold and Kimball Stroud, Cafe Milano’s Franco Nuschese and Hollywood on the Potomac’s Janet Donovan).

Look how many professional propagandists are listed.

It was, by all measures, a classic Cafe Milano night; as the group discussed how to get more women to run for office, the conversation was sprinkled with interruptions from high-profile diners; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and Colin Powell all popped in to say hello (and Sen. Lindsey Graham happened to be in the room, as well)…

What a pathetic glamorous crowd.
