It’s just not right, some media insiders are grumbling.

Since reinventing itself as an issues-based magazine rather than a style magazine, Glamour has done a series of highly coveted profiles on the most impressive women in TV news.

But some industry insiders are miffed because the mag seems to have carefully avoided Fox News talent, while heaping attention on what they consider to be left-leaning outlets.

Since Samantha Barry took the helm in 2018, the source notes there have been pieces on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, PBS’s Yamiche Alcindor, NBC’s Antonia Hylton and CBS’s Norah O’Donnell.

It also did a piece called “Eight Black women journalists on reporting police brutality,” which included talent from CNN, NBC and ABC.

But particularly irking, says an industry insider, is that Barry — who was head of CNN’s social media before taking the Glamour gig — has done three profiles on CNN stars, including Dana Bash, Sara Sider and Brooke Baldwin.

Meanwhile, they say, Fox’s veteran women, including Harris Faulkner and Dana Perino have been passed over.

Sniffed an industry insider, “With a long roster of powerful women at Fox News, it’s embarrassing that Samantha Barry is going out of her way to take care of CNN given her former employment there.”

They added that when Barry took over she said “that she wanted to focus on women’s issues which obviously spans across all women – liberal, conservative, independent. All women have stories.”

A rep for Glamour didn’t get back to us.
