Factual Errors - Request Editor to Review (COI)[edit]

We would like to request that an editor make corrections and updates to the Condé Nast Traveler page. There are many factual inaccuracies throughout the Condé Nast Traveler wikipedia entry. We have noticed that some of this inaccurate history/background is being repeated by news sources on the web. We are not editing the page directly, due to conflict of interest, but have outlined the following inaccuracies and suggested updates below.

Inaccuracies:

- Remove: mention of James Baker as Executive Editor. Jim was only with the magazine for less than two years, and has since left the publications. [1]

- Update: The current Editor-in-Chief of Condé Nast Traveler is Klara Glowczewksa. She has been an editor at the magazine since it's launch in 1987. Her full bio can be found here: [2]

Yes check.svg Done--xanchester (t) 05:32, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

- Correction: The magazine was not founded in the 1950's and has nothing to do with Diner's Club. Condé Nast Traveler was founded in 1987 by founding Editor-in-Chief Sir Harold Evans. [3]

Yes check.svg Done Corrected. Cited with articles from the New York Times and the Washington Post.--xanchester (t) 04:59, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

- Dispute: Condé Nast did purchase "European Travel and Life Magazine's" list of subscribers, but the magazines were not folded in together and share no editorial background. Request that this mention be removed for inaccuracy. [4]

Yes check.svg Done Corrected the wording.--xanchester (t) 05:32, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

- Clarify: "Truth in Travel" is the guiding principled for all content published in Condé Nast Traveler. It is not the "sub-title." The Truth in Travel principle was established by Harry Evans at the magazine's inception. It means that Condé Nast Traveler has never and will never accept free or discounted trips and accommodations, nor gifts, products, or payment, in exchange for editorial coverage. [5]

Yes check.svg Done Corrected.--xanchester (t) 05:32, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

- Remove: advertisers list is inaccurate and often changing. Here is a recent story on the Condé Nast Traveler advertising - [6]

Yes check.svg Done Because, as you've pointed out, the advertisers list frequently changes, I've removed the sentence entirely. The sentence also lacked a citation.--xanchester (t) 04:08, 10 November 2012 (UTC)

- Update: The Condé Nast Traveler digital presence is at condenasttraveler.com and on 7 digital editions on the iPad and Amazon tablets. The references to Conde Nast Digital, Concierage.com, and Truth.Travel are outdated and inaccurate. [7]

Yes check.svg Done Mentioned the site and the apps. A guideline on Wikipedia discourages external links in the body of the article, but there's a link under the External Links heading.--xanchester (t) 05:32, 10 November 2012 (UTC)
