This is a key thing to understand about magazine editors. They’re always judged on their magazines — on the quality of the product put out by their staffers. But managing down is only half the job. You also have to manage up, and across — you need to have a great relationship with your publisher, and also you need to have a great relationship with your proprietor. Otherwise you will fail. I wonder how much time Tina spends managing Barry, for instance.
