The best experience I ever had was with the Los Angeles Times Magazine.
Not only was the reporter a consumate professional (it was skater Tony
Hawk's brother!), but he called later to verify every fact he was going to
report on, then a staffer at the LA Times Magazine called me to also
double-check every fact before going to print. And this was for a 300 or
so word article!
