Journalism

"Editors love contrarians, who seem to promise fresh takes. That the work might be ‘contrary’ because it is dubious somehow gets overlooked."
 - Jay Rosen, Journalism Professor, NYU

Jay, I would go even further to say that the work doesn’t have merit on the mere basis of being contrary, even if it is true. Journalism should be judged on how rigorously it weighs opposing points of view, how far it flees from speculation, and how deeply it resonates to our humanity.

From that elevated standard, true journalism is few and far between. I’m actually rather elated when I do find it.

What the to-do lists of successful people look like

"While I’ve tried different online to-do lists, I cannot work off of a to-do list that isn’t written or typed. The delete button will never give you the kicks that crossing off tasks will give you.”
