The backlash against Condé Nast

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:50 pm on 16 June 2020

The New York Times is describing it as "A Reckoning at Condé Nast".

The editor-in-chief of the publisher's food magazine Bon Appétit' Adam Rapoport recently stepped down after a photo from 2013 showed him in 'brownface'.

Meanwhile, Vogue editor Anna Wintour has issued a so-called 'diversity apology'.

To look at what's going on, Jesse is joined by former New York magazine editor, Kirsten Matthew, who is now back in New Zealand where she runs a marketing company.
