In this week’s “The Ethicist” column in The New York Times Magazine, Nick McCarvel, an intern at a “national magazine” asks for advice handling his editor’s request to “post comments on one of the magazine’s online blogs, being sure not to mention my working for the magazine but to write in a style that suggests I’m a reader.”

Now, my first instinct was to do a quick Google search on McCarvel to see if I could find out what the magazine in question was. And my search results showed that I wasn't the first person to do so. Mediabistro’s Fishbowl NY's Google search on McCarvel uncovered that the publication was Tennis Magazine.

An update posted at the bottom of "The Ethicist" question says the editor has left the magazine, “apparently for unrelated reasons.” For the magazine's sake, I hope the editor's departure is not a coincidence.
