From pre-pubescent pageant queens to disembodied derrieres, the offenders were in rare (often Photoshopped) form this year. We had a tough time narrowing down the ads, shows, videos, movies and more to a mere top ten list, given the astounding amount of horrendous material out there. Repeat offenders American Apparel and Diesel stayed true to their consistently misogynistic standards, while newcomers like PETA and Jillian Michaels made a strong impression with their messed up messages.
But it wasn’t all doom and gloom in the media this year. Thankfully, we managed to compile aÂ list of ten winners who exemplified what’s right with the media (we swear, there really are a few things being done right). See why we’re impressed with Glamour Magazine, thrilled with the rockin’ movie, The Runaways, and seriously moved by the sentimental words of underwear-promoting, singing fruit (no, really).
