Q&A with Pamela Jaccarino, Editor in Chief, Luxe Magazine
“In the day and age of “print is dead” we really feel that there’s still a place for print. I work with a group of very young editors who still love print and who still value print. We still believe that if you create something that is well done and artfully put together and you produce it with good, high-quality, there is still a place for print. Print is not dead exclamation point.” Pamela Jaccarino.

Why The Biggest Debate in Advertising Is Irrelevant
There’s nothing abstract about the height or width of an ad – those dimensions can be quantified. We believe the same about media quality. If you’re not measuring this third dimension, media quality, your campaign is missing its full potential. And you’re not getting the most value for every dollar you spend. Integral Ad Science offers a comprehensive suite of tools that gives buyers and sellers actionable intelligence on a wide variety of media quality data such as Viewability, Fraud, and Brand Safety. We’ve also created a proprietary holistic quality measurement called TRAQ Score, which combines multiple elements of media quality into one simple aggregate number.

The New Yorker's David Remnick writes: Four nights a week for sixteen years, Jon Stewart, the host and impresario of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” has taken to the air to expose our civic bizarreries. He has been heroic and persistent. Blasted into orbit by a trumped-up (if you will) impeachment and a stolen Presidential election, and then rocketing through the war in Iraq and right up to the current electoral circus, with its commodious clown car teeming with would-be Commanders-in-Chief, Stewart has lasered away the layers of hypocrisy in politics and in the media. On any given night, a quick montage of absurdist video clips culled from cable or network news followed by Stewart’s vaudeville reactions can be ten times as deflating to the self-regard of the powerful as any solemn editorial—and twice as illuminating as the purportedly non-fake news that provides his fuel.
