Jane Fonda

June 2024

Your magazine remains the best publication in the country, but Peter Braunstein’s cover story on Jane Fonda was a mistake. Many different celebrities have reflected our changing culture by reinventing themselves—Cher and Madonna jump to mind as far more representative of the trend—but you chose one who disgraced this country and renounced its culture, then turned around and profited from it. That’s not reinvention, that’s hypocrisy.
