Default Positive changes in BHM portrayal in the media

Maybe as idea for a new thread we so far have not had - a collection of examples where we can detect positive changes in the media portrayal von BHMs. As a FFA communication scientiest, this of course is an issue I follow quite closely and might get more out of than others.

This is the most outright example in very mainstream media of positive fat portrayal I've ever seen - up to the unabashed url title : These celebs look better fat.

Plus it's not in some obscure indie net-niche publication, but Germany's largest tabloid newspaper BILD (comparable to the UK 'Sun', though with a bit more quality & common sense), where the online version gets 1.6 million hits a day. And it was not hidden there somewhere after 3 miles of scrolling, but headline for the young-readers section on the page header, where it is automatically displayed alternating with 5 other issues.

Apart from the fact that BILD is right here (that's a red marked calender event in my book normally) in the assessment of the celebs looks - I take it as a miniscule sign of hope than slowly mainstream media won't necessarily turn into (F)FFAs, but at least start dealing with the weight question in a bit more balanced and realistic manner.

So - have any of you found other good examples of positive shifts in the media? Features with good reporting about BHMs?
Post them here, for others to enjoy!
