Teen Vogue faces heat for sponsored Facebook editorial
Despite having gained a reputation in recent years for its progressive take on political issues, Teen Vogue came under fire this week for publishing an editorial that praised Facebook's efforts to safeguard political speech. One of the problems with that? The editorial was actually sponsored content that wasn't labeled as such. After inspiring a Twitter storm that resulted in the publication updating the piece with a "sponsored" label, the post was ultimately removed from the Teen Vogue site. {New York Times}
