VANITY Fair yesterday took some of the deepest staff cuts at Condé Nast, but Editor Graydon Carter didn't deliver the bad news himself.
Although Carter was said to have been at his restaurant, The Monkey Bar, Wednesday night, he was a no show in the office yesterday because he had jetted off on a vacation yesterday morning.
Vanity Fair's layoffs were said to be in the double-digit range, and hit as high as senior editors and as low as fact checkers, and were deep, in part, because Carter largely ignored the edict to chop 5 percent late last year.

The horror - the horror; whatever will the metrosexuals do?
Then Carter decided he needed to editorialize his position in the gun debate, for whatever reason, and suffice to say it was in line with the rest of his political views. Canceled my subscription and stopped reading it.
Same thing happened with Esquire - both magazines used to offer more than fashion ads and socialist propaganda, but now both are mostly rags for urban metrosexuals and other liberal hyper-consumers.
I have never purchased nor read a Vanity Fair.
