Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Vanity Fair has managed to not only survive but thrive in the post-print era. Now the issue is: How will it do in the post-Graydon Carter one?

The same concern applies to glossy VANITY FAIR.  Read the commentary by THE NEW YORK TIMES executive editor Bill Keller and the newspaper's genteel values are obvious.    One wonders if it can afford to stay that way and not morph into more of sweatshop like those operated by purely digital sites. For the second quarter, THE TIMES reports, the company itself suffered a net loss of $119.7 million.    That was mostly from a non-cash write-down of $161.3

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  To the surprise of most media watchers, Conde Nast started up business glossy PORTFOLIO a few years ago, then killed it this year. With Politico.com owning the media influence game in Washington D.C., the worst can be expected for the town's newspaper business.    WASHINGTON POST is being subsidized by the parent's successful Kaplan business.    The amazing thing, though, is that Rev. Moon's WASHINGTON TIMES has been holding on at all.

Graydon Carter, publisher of VANITY FAIR, and his fellow leaders at Conde Nast have every reason to continue to bulk up on comfort food.

Secret to World-Class Speaking

Pivotal Public Speaking

Their eyes are glossy, their minds’ elsewhere, and their bodies ready to bolt. It was downright devious, definitely bordered on preposterous, and decidedly over the top. Maybe even a little cheesy. Yet the audience gobbled it up. The speaker gave a brilliant performance. He courted his audience’s emotions. He pushed and pulled on their hot buttons. He pandered to the whimsical fancies of the crowd. Effective? Yes… if you’re looking for a temporary high. Valuable?

Cicero Versus Demosthenes

Pivotal Public Speaking

Their eyes are glossy, their minds’ elsewhere, and their bodies ready to bolt. There were two great orators from ancient Mediterranean: Demosthenes the Greek and Cicero the Roman.
