In a recent article taking public umbrage with the teen megastar, Hannah Montana (known also as Miley Cyrus, the daughter of "Achy Breaky" crooner, Billy Ray Cyrus), the magazine decided the pop-phenom shirked her responsibilities as a role model to the nation's youth. What exactly could the young teen princess have done to invoke the ire of Consumer Reports? Scantily-clad forays across the stage? Overtly sexual gyrations wrapped in a Disney facade? An air of oversophisticated worldliness despite the lack of years lived? Wholesale immodesty?

It seems to us that Miley, her father, and Disney had a perfect opportunity to help influence teens and counteract—rather than encourage—this trend.
* All tongue-in-cheekness implied.
