Channel One-promoted Teen Vogue emails kids An*l Sex guide

July 17, 2017

Under the new Houghton Mifflin CEO Jack Lynch, Channel One News appears to becoming more politically slanted and sexually edgy.


From Jim Metrock: Why in the world did Channel One News promote the age-inappropriate Teen Vogue to middle school and high school students on their TV show?

Why in the world is Channel One News insisting on plugging Teen Vogue on its Facebook page knowing elementary school students will visit there?

Channel One News allowed Teen Vogue’s editor to be open up their kid’s show on May 25.  Channel One gave no warning to teachers, school administrators, and certainly not parents.

The whole point of Channel One News turning over their classroom TV show to the edgy Teen Vogue was to help sell subscriptions and drive children to the Teen Vogue website.

After seeing Channel One’s plug for Teen Vogue I subscribed to it – just like Teen Vogue and Channel One wanted kids to do.  Immediately I started receiving emails from Teen Vogue filled with teaser headlines that make the child want to click on the full story.

Many of the stories would make many parents very mad.

Here’s an example of a Teen Vogue story aimed at kids: Everything You Need To Know About An*l Sex.

Teen Vogue says, “This is anal 101, for teens, beginners, and all inquisitive folk.” The amazingly reckless article ends with, “Anal sex and anal stimulation can be awesome, and if you want to give it a go, you do that. More power to you.”

The promotion of Teen Vogue by Channel One News isn’t just a problem because of the age-inappropriate content, but also because Channel One News is increasingly having a liberal slant to its news coverage. The promo feature story on Teen Vogue was primarily about how Teen Vogue was becoming very political and anti-Trump.  On all levels, it was a terrible mistake for Channel One and Houghton Mifflin to encourage children and teens to feel good about the toxic Teen Vogue.

Read . Be warned. Even knowing this content, as of July 15, the brainiacs at Channel One News are still featuring a Teen Vogue ad on its Facebook page.

The man to blame for dumping this into kids’ lives?  Jack Lynch, president of Channel One’s parent company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The decision to advertise Teen Vogue to schoolchildren had to be made at the very top, or near the very top.  Either way, Jack Lynch had to have known about the bold move Channel One was making.
