Evaluation of Credibility:

What Really Makes New York Work: Everyday Necessities; Errands of the Rich and Famous

The article I am reviewing is called “What Really Makes New York Work: Everyday Necessities; Errands of the Rich and Famous” by “New York Times’” Joan Kron. This magazine article was published in April 8, 1990, and later found from famous article website New York Times. Written by Joan Kron, the editor in chief of Avenue magazine, and mostly known as the author of “Ms. Faux Pas: A Non-Guide to Glitterati Manners”, I find this article related to my own essay, “Work Repetitions: How They Are Dealt With”, in which it relates to the words work and repetition. As noted within my essay, Work Repetitions: How They Are Dealt With, I talk about work repetition continues to increase in financial satisfaction and pay rate, employers who work overtime also have dissatisfaction in work areas that are attempted to be dealt with. Errands, the topic of the article, are one good example of deed repetition.

Defined within the dictionary, an errand is known to be a short and quick trip to accomplish a specific purpose, as to buy something, deliver a package, or convey a message, often for someone else. The article states that the subjects used were rich and famous human beings. Being that the people are rich already, why would they need to repeat their own errands? Why not ask a servant, if owned, to do the errands for them. The reason for it would be that the rich can keep their reputation, not depend always on another, to pay their servants, to get paid themselves, and maybe even live life peacefully.

The intended audience for this article is mostly for readers, noted especially for those living in New York. This means the article would be both for a scholarly audience and experts; it would not matter whether the audience was known as the general public or novices. The purpose of this article would be to inform, teach, explain, enlighten, and persuade the people, as stated from the title, what really makes New York work their everyday necessities; errands of the rich and famous.

In terms of the articles’ objectivity, the information is propaganda, and maybe a fact. Joan Kron’s point-of-view is New York objective, but mostly impartial. The language of this article is free of emotion-rousing words and bias. In addition, the author is fifty percent bias affiliated with an organization.

The way the article is written, let’s now discuss about the articles reliability and credibility. First of all why should anyone believe information from this site? People should believe information from this site because the information comes from one of the most trusted newspaper; New York Times. Also, does the information appear to be valid and well-researched, or is it unsupported by evidence? The information appears to be valid and well-research since it has been around since 1990, and now with New York Times 2016. Furthermore, are quotes and other strong assertions backed by sources that a person could check through other means? Yes, there are quotes and other strong assertions backed by sources that could check through other means. I am most certain that the article’s currency is the non-web equivalent of the material that would provide the way of verifying its legitimacy.

Based on New York Times’ Business article, Free-for-All on the Name Exchange, writer Sue Cummings discusses briefly about Joan Kron, the writer of What Really Makes New York Work: Everyday Necessities; Errands of the Rich and Famous. It was stated that not only was Joan Kron editor of Avenue magazine, but editor at Allure magazine as well. In addition, it was indicated that Joan Kron did not think of herself as a risk-taker when she registered some domain names during the year 1996. However, Joan’s Net-savvy son, Daniel, founder and creative director of SportsForWomen.com, convinced his mother that the time was right to reserve a little statements that she could use later to stimulate a book that she was writing about plastic surgery.­

Set as an almost three year recent article on New York Times’ Fashion and Style article, Her Story, Give or Take a Few Lines, 2006 New York Times writer Christine Haugney demonstrates her own understanding of Joan Kron as well. Known to be at the age eighty-five years old during the year 2012 of January, it has been my estimate that Joan Kron should be around the age of eighty-nine years from birth date being that this evaluation of credibility is written on 2016 during the month of March.

New York Times, as group writer and observer, specifies within their N.Y./Region article, Corrections, published on December 14 that because of an editing error, a report in the Advertising column of Business Day December 13, 1989, the departure of Joan Kron as editor of Avenue magazine cited the authorship of the book “High Tech” incompletely. The book was originally written by Ms. Joan Kron and Suzanne Slesin.
