I call bullshit. Big, fat, gigantic bullshit. Marv himself says:
The editorial policy is set by the editor (yours truly). If that sounds autocratic, well, it is, although I do bounce ideas off staff members.
Yeah, I bet he bounces those ideas right off their heads and knocks them out.
Autocratic is synonymous with despotic - meaning " a : a ruler with absolute power and authority b : a person exercising power tyrannically" (Merriam Webster).
Thanks Marv. I couldn't have put it much better myself. You've just about summed it up.
