Why would you trust a magazine that doesn’t trust itself?  In a baffling display of ‘balance as bias’ — or perhaps ‘ balance as baloney ‘ — The New Republic has hired right-wing misinformer Jim Manzi to spread confusion about their articles. Maybe magazines don’t bother employing fact checkers anymore, but when I coauthored the cover story for the Atlantic Monthly in 1996, “MidEast Oil Forever?” Drifting Toward Disaster , the magazine not only edited the piece, they made me provide a credible published source for every claim.  Even today, I know magazines like Wired fact-check ... market research, surveys and trends

published just over a year ago. At the time, the question was purely rhetorical. But in the ensuing conversations it quickly became obvious that the answer was a resounding "NO."

Now I find myself at the center of the debate about the future of advertising, design, and marketing—even the future of work itself. Seven months in, we've had the opportunity to work on everything from TV ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
