Patrolling the Advertising-Editorial Border

September 25, 1997|Reuters

The Magazine Publishers of America and the American Society of Magazine Editors are urging the publishing industry to reject advertisers' demands for pre-publication review of text, pictures and subject matter. The two groups issued a joint statement calling for an industrywide policy that would ensure editorial integrity and credibility. The statement was prompted by reports that some advertisers are demanding to be alerted before publication about potentially controversial stories. The professional groups are worried that granting the right to review upcoming subject matter could create "the appearance of censorship and ultimately could undermine editorial independence."
