Post's Givhan on Skinny Supermodels: Don't Hate, Regulate

Is there any industry that elite liberals in the media don't want to regulate? Perhaps it's a little tongue-in-cheek, but The Washington Post's Robin Givhan opened her fashion column in the January 19 Style section thusly:

You know we've progressed as a society when our modern-day Upton Sinclair is a clothing critic concerned about models strutting down the catwalk rather than the slaughterhouses that produce the hamburgers they won't touch with a 10-foot pole.Until today, I just thought Zoolander was a funny movie with a hilarious gasoline fight scene. But now I realize that was just one clarion call for OSHA regulation.My boss wrote more at our BusinessandMedia.org Web site, right here.
