Lol of course, but maybe they haven't, or they might think their magazine is more prestigious than DDMS :)
the latter

After seeing the dislike of all the things that were done, I'm feeling bad for all the other interviewees that don't have a platform to vent.
They couldn't even spell my name right

Lav davka they buttoned you up and covered your elbows because otherwise it would have been too goyish for their audience, maybe they just felt it would be somewhat disrespectful for you to be featured so publicly in such a casual state. At least according to their mindset.
Dan obviously didn't care - he was the one who gave them the pix

At the end of the day, they should have been more forthcoming.

They promised to show me the final edit, and JJ and I did 20 hours of work on what supposedly was a final edit, but then it was edited again.
With the pictures, they didn't give the photographer the credit they promised and they made some truly absurd edits without asking any permission. If they didn't want a picture for being too casual, they had dozens of other options to choose from.

Had they shown us the final draft, I wouldn't have given permission. Which is probably why they didn't send anything.

What shocks me the most isn't the shtick Ami pulled, but that you're shocked by it. After our trip to Antarctica was written up in multiple frum publications, their rendition was by far the most ridiculed by our group, including you.

Most (all?) the other publications send me a final PDF to correct, one of which I forwarded to you and SF for input, and all our edits were incorporated. Ami was the one that took the most liberty to embellish and even fabricate parts of our trip, which we didn't find out about until it hit newsstands.

Since then I've been sticking to Mishpacha (which has printed not only my elbows, but my daughter's too!).

I'm not shocked by it, but I figured that if I was promised a final draft and editing that I would get it.

To be honest, I just remember all the magazines doing a poor job with Antarctica. I don't read any of them.

Some things might be left out due to considerations of space (or perceived relevancy).
Asked Ami why they removed Mendel's BBQ from that paragraph, they said it's so there shouldn't be competition for their advertisers.

Because, I'm sure Cleveland's 57 pizza shops that are running to advertise in the Ami will all be offended otherwise ::).

Ami usually tries to get headshots with the most acne...

Absolute pet peeve of mine, and all Jewish mags are guilty if it.

I don't need to count people's pores!

I guess that is solved with the orange tint.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Would you have preferred the non-Jewish way, a makeup artist actually painting your face ? :)

I don't get the BIG disappointment in photoshopping / enhancing the images. Yes they do it so it should look better for them, and it would be nice if they approved it before. But I can understand that they don't want backlash with someone in their mag wearing shorts etc. In essence, it does not reduce nor put Dan in a negative way, and nobody besides Dan and family would know about those minor edits.

After all the article is written well and is full of knowledge. Most people just skim through the articles and don't analyze the images...

Now, if they said they will credit a photographer and didn't that is wrong.

Since then I've been sticking to Mishpacha
