The holding ceased publishing the magazine of the actress and businesswoman Goop after two issues.
Conde Nast Publishing Holding will not publish Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop magazine. It was originally planned to publish the publication twice a year, but after the second issue was released, a scandal erupted. The editors were accused of the absence of the fact of checking and the publication of unverified information. Paltrow spoke about this in an interview with The New York Times, stressing that fact-checking is an outdated approach.
However, sources close to the situation say that the main reason for the closure of Goop was the desire of the businesswoman to advertise in the publication the products that are presented on her website of the same name. For example, jade and amethyst eggs "to increase female sexual energy", stickers "to maintain the balance of energy vibrations in the body" and stones "to heal the chakras." In the opinion of Conde Nast's management, this is contrary to company policy. In addition, the magazine published questionable advice that could harm the health of readers.
Paltrow said she will continue to publish her magazine and will still hire a fact-checking specialist by September.
