New York - We here at Vanity Fair maintain a kind of affectionate rivalry with our downstairs neighbors at The New Yorker. We play softball every year, compete for some of the same stories, and share an elevator bank. (You can tell the ones who are headed to the 20th floor by their Brooklyn pallor and dog-eared paperbacks.) And heaven knows we’ve published our share of scandalous images, on the cover and otherwise. So we’ve been watching the kerfuffle over last week’s New Yorker cover with a mixture of empathy and better-you-than-us relief. We had our own presidential campaign cover in the works, which explored a different facet of the Politics of Fear, but we shelved it when The New Yorker’s became the “It Girl” of the blogosphere. Now, however, in a selfless act of solidarity with our downstairs neighbors here at the Condé Nast building, we’d like to share it with you. Confidentially, of course.

He's at it again.Discosean21 never-ending efforts to save Africa are about to get a new lease of life as the comic/ singer,music by the group GUY. prepares to guest-edit the October issue of American magazine Vanity Fair, focusing on the African continent, writes The New York Times. The move may achieve some much needed face-saving for his RED campaign, which lets consumers give a percentage of a special red Amex card bill or proceeds from trendy goods such as a red Armani watch to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It turns out the much-touted campaign has so far spent on marketing and raised just for the fund, according to Britain's Daily Mail. "Africa is sexy and people need to know that," The New York Times quotes Bono as saying. "We've got to get better at telling the success stories of Africa in addition to the horror stories." But how do you tell stories about Africa without making "blanket statements" about a continent with 900 million people, numerous faiths, tribes and nations, Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Karen Heller asks. Well, you start with "the magazine of serious fabulousness", she continues scathingly. "Vanity Fair, which views the environment through the green hemp-gauze of Hollywood, is just the publication to pounce on the philanthropy zeitgeist. Can't wait for the African version of the Oscar party." The U.S.-based Daily Intelligencer questions how editing job will resolve "a few hundred years of turmoil" on the African continent. Meanwhile, The New York Times notes that there is a danger "the effort to chic out Africa" may come across as a hobby born out of extreme wealth. "Really?" answers . "What is more interesting to me is that we are losing the fight against AIDS in Africa. There are still 5,000 Africans dying every day of a preventable, treatable disease, dying for lack of drugs that are available at any corner drugstore." The RED campaign gets media flak elsewhere. Advertising Age voices scepticism about "philanthropic fashionistas decked out in Red T-shirts and iPods" saving children dying of AIDS in Africa. The magazine quotes Mark Rosenman, professor at the Union Institute and University in Cincinnati: "There is a broadening concern that business is...crowding out philanthropic activity and even substituting for it," he says. "It benefits the for-profit partners much more than the charitable causes." Back to Heller of the Philadelphia Inquirer: It says everything about our current climate, she says, that RED's "ambition is huge yet deceptively accessible and acquisitional: Shop so the unfortunate can live." Bloggers are even less sympathetic.

*******www.beet.tv/2008/10/campbell-brown.html When a candidate says something that is incorrect, pointing it out to the viewers isn't partisan, according to Campbell Brown, anchor of CNN's Campbell Brown: Election Center. "If I don't [point it out to my viewers], I'm insulting their intelligence, and I'm not comfortable with myself, because I'm ignoring something that is clearly factual and is staring me in the face," she says. Brown moderated a conference at the Time Warner Politics 08 Summit yesterday about the changing face of news and the presidential election. The other panel members--Vanity Fair Editor Graydon Carter, Time Managing Editor Richard Stengel, and CNN President Jonathan Klein--discussed topics like the future of new media and the role of opinion in journalism. Andy interviewed Brown after the session. In the segment, she talks about how political reporting has changed since 2004. Check out TVNewser's coverage of the conference here. --Kelsey Blodget, Associate Producer

“The OBAMA Brief - Galvanizing an Electorate” video is a graphical version of an ‘opinion piece’ that bears the same name. Because it is slightly longer than an article one might find in the New Yorker, Vanity Fair or New York Times Magazine and it is shorter than a short book, the transformation of an ‘opinion piece’ into a video will allow the ideas to be communicated in a succinct fashion. “The OBAMA Brief” was originally structured as a strategic document geared towards assisting then-Senator Obama and the Obama-Biden ticket in winning the White House. Since it wasn’t finalized until mid-October 2008, it has been revamped in a way that makes it’s recommendations more pertinent to the post-election transition period---75 days between winning the election and being inaugurated.

The resulting photos get rid of the pregnancy rumors that were circulating the star. Akon's assault trial has been put on hold for 2-more weeks.

Now Miley Cyrus is practically eating her words from earlier this year when her pseudo-nude photo graced the cover of Vanity Fair. The Disney star recently got quoted as saying that she'd love to work with photographer Annie Liebovitz again and that foreign countries liked the controversial photo much more than the states because America is conservative. That's it for now. I'm Dana Ward and we'll see you right here at GetTheDaily**** for more entertainment news. Distributed by Tubemogul.
