In a Moment of Uncertainty, TIME Is Certain of Its 97-Year Mission

In remarkable moments throughout history, news organizations have been there to inform the masses and accurately chronicle what’s happening for posterity’s sake.

It’s an enormous undertaking, and one we wanted to learn more about. Felsenthal lent us some time, in between being a CEO, editor, husband, father and homeschool teacher, to tell us how he’s pulling it... Continue reading at 'Folio Magazine'
