As long as they are simply guiding voters to registration, there is nothing wrong with this.  They are not putting out fake posts on Facebook talking about how Hillary should go to jail, etc.  So to call it "fake news liberal media in a nutshell" is the same ignorant, rhetoric the President is guilty of when debasing journalists across the board.  Cheers!

Sanjeev! They straight up fabricated a headline! There is a difference between a slant, or hyperbole, and literally just creating something out of thin air.

You're going to tell me that advertisers cannot use misdirection to get clicks to other sites?  The only difference is that this was click bait for voter registration.  They are not influencing the election, simply getting voters registered. 

Now if it went to a site that was pro/anti-Democrat or pro/anti-Republican, then yeah that's a problem.  Cheers!

That's just silly Parsad.  Elle started out as a left leaning feminist magazine in France and has remained so through today.  Their primary target audience is 16 to 34 year old women with disposal income.  Odds are very likely that any reader clicking that link is left of center.   So they don't have to link them to a democratic site to be effective.

God forbid we have more people registered to vote!

I guarantee you that Ivanka Trump reads Elle...and Kim Kardashian...and most of the female anchors from Fox News.  Don't equate a vote with whether a media outlet has a left wing or right wing readership.  I wouldn't care if Breitbart did the same thing...as long as the link didn't suggest something negative or positive about which candidate to vote for.  Frankly, any way you can get more voters to turn out, the less an argument can be made if someone won based on the popular vote or electoral college.  Cheers!

Apparently this relatively wide  spread ploy is designed to sign up young women in the belief that they will vote for the Democratic candidate.  (See numerous posts by Dingaan) https://www.teenvogue.com/story/fake-celebrity-news-stories-are-actually-voter-registration-links-social-media. Obviously leftist politics has become just "win baby" by any means necessary.

Why are you stirring crap up?   Tell me any party (left-wing or right-wing) that doesn't want to win?  The President's whole shtick is that he's a "winner", the "greatest economy", "we're the best", "you're losers", and you have no comment about that?  But Democrats use current advertising practices to get voters registered and that's somehow different than any other legal tactic.  Please find something real to complain about!  Cheers!
