Vanity Fair and furry
The magazine published on its March 2001 issue an article by George Gurley about the furry subculture intitled Pleasures of the Fur. It was generally regarded as a very unfavourable portrayal of the fandom.
The Vanity Fair coverage has been mentioned in subsequently in regards to furries. For example, in a 2004 interview the director John Waters is asked why he hasn't "addressed" furries. He replies "I haven't done that because Vanity Fair had that big article about it, and I never really believed it was true."
In July 03, 2009 CNN's Anderson Cooper  joined on a report about Anthrocon. In the report they called the convention "Furry Fest" and told the viewers to google the Vanity Fair article to learn more about what is happening at the convention.
