Discover the news that shapes this site – here’s how


If you’re a news junkie, I have some good news for you: I’ve launched three new magazines on Flipboard, the popular news app for smartphones.

So if you’re curious about the news that shapes the stories that appear on this site, you’ll want to tune in.

Elliott Advocacy is underwritten by Generali Global Assistance. Generali Global Assistance has been a leading provider of travel insurance and other assistance services for more than 25 years. We offer a full suite of innovative, vertically integrated travel insurance and emergency services. Generali Global Assistance is part of The Europ Assistance (EA) Group, who pioneered the travel assistance industry in 1963 and continues to be the leader in providing real-time assistance anywhere in the world, delivering on our motto – You Live, We Care.

Here’s how: First, download Flipboard. It’s probably the best news app out there, although it’s not the only one I use. (I like Circa and the AP Mobile apps, too.)

Next, follow yours truly on Flipboard.

Consumer advocacy is a curated list of general-interest articles about customers, customer service and advocacy. I include any stories that may affect you when you’re out there in consumerland. This reporting also informs me when I write about customer service.

Christopher Elliott is a list of every story I write. It includes all of my syndicated channels, so there’s some overlap from time to time. If you can’t get enough of me, you have to subscribe to this magazine. (Mom, if you’re reading this, I made this one for you. And don’t worry, I’ll explain Flipboard to you later.)

Of course, there’s no charge for these magazines. I produce these because you need to know. And besides, I like it when people read over my shoulder. It’s more interesting.

Got any ideas for new magazines? Please let me know. And thanks for being a part of this site.
