mediageek 9-1-06: American Apparel Threatens Independent Magazine

The fall issue of the radically independent Clamor Magazine has a section taking on American Apparel for its anti-union record, charges of sexual harassment by former employees, and advertising criticized for objectifying women. And while many of these charges have already appeared in the press, American Apparel, which made $120 million last year, has decided to threaten Clamor, whose entire annual budget is $150,000, with a lawsuit over their reporting.

In this edition of the program Jen Angel, founder and co-publisher of Clamor, explains the situation and why it’s important to expose the underbelly of American Apparel.
