1. We always
publish corrections at least as prominently as the original mistake
2. We are eager to make corrections quickly and candidly.
3. Although we welcome letters that are critical of our work, an aggrieved
party need not have a letter published for us to correct a mistake.
We will publish corrections on our own and in our own voice as soon
as we are told about a mistake by anyone --our staff, an uninvolved
reader, or an aggrieved reader -- and can confirm the correct information.
4. Our corrections policy should not be mistaken for a policy of accommodating
readers who are simply unhappy about a story.
5. Information about corrections or complaints should be directed to
editor in chief David Kuhn. He may be reached by mail at 1230 Avenue
of the Americas, New York, NY, 10020; or by fax at 212-332-6350; or
by e-mail at

Brill Media Holding, L.P., the parent company of this magazine, has
recently entered into an agreement in which NBC, CBS, and Primedia (
a large magazine company) will participate as limited partners in an
Internet business to be run by Brill Media Holdings.
Although the two ventures are separate and these media companies by
contract specifically disclaim any involvement in or influence over
this magazine, there is nonetheless an indirect connection between the
magazine and these companies. Any complaints about perceived bias by
the magazine in favor of NBC, CBS, or Primedia should also be directed
to Mr. Gartner.
