In Fairness Review was conceived by Mr. Taub as a result of his own reputational challenges. As he explains:

Shortly after Fernwood closed, the company and I were sued by a minority group of unhappy investors.  Their claims were baseless and the litigation was ultimately of no consequence, other than some false and highly irresponsible reporting that apparently persisted on the Internet for many years without my knowledge.  Over the years, these articles rose from obscurity to a position of prominence in the Google search results for my name.  Almost ten years later, it has become necessary to have these corrected or retracted, which has been no easy task.  In the process, I began to imagine what a credible and objective platform for telling my own story could look like, and more importantly, how others with reputational challenges of their own could benefit from it.  In Fairness Review was my answer to this all too frequent problem in the digital age.
