If you visit your local grocery store this week, you might notice this week's cover of PEOPLE Magazine: 'The Duggars Now: Life After Scandal.' Out of curiosity, you might grab a copy and thumb through it as you wait your turn in the checkout line, but you will quickly discover that the article is nothing like the magazine's past stories featuring the Duggar family.
This particular article contains no new quotes from either Jim Bob or Michelle Duggar, nor from any of their 19 children, three children-in-law, or five grandchildren.
Bride-to-be cousin Amy Duggar contributed a few quotes to the article, as did close family-friend Michaela Bates Keilen before her wedding on August 15th. Both ladies expressed their support for the Duggars.
The article also contains multiple quotes from "family insiders," although without knowing the identities of those individuals, it is difficult to determine the validity of their comments.
In the past, PEOPLE Magazine has done a commendable job presenting the Duggars' biggest milestones in an unbiased light, and it would be wonderful to see this publication continue to do so, even while the rest of the media world tears the family apart.
