chrisamico.newsblur.com — And then I tasted it. I immediately tasted the garlic-sharp, bracing, freshly grated garlic is hard to miss-but it was kind of good.

Trump, comb-over justice and Politico's Dylan Byers

storify.com — The problem starts here. Dylan Byers thinks I'm saying what he expects people to say: "Why are you covering Trump? He's an ass and a clown and he can't win." But that was not my observation. My observation was: by their own rules - the horse race game they freely decide to play - they have no choice.

"He Said, She Said" Journalism: Are We Done With That Yet?

huffingtonpost.com — There I am, sitting at the breakfast table, with my coffee and a copy of the New York Times, in the classic newspaper reading position from before the Web. And I come to this article, headlined "Ex-Chairman of A.I.G. Says Bailout Has Failed." I immediately recognize in it the signs of a he said, she said account.

Why does the product (campaign coverage) get made before a majority of users are even in the market…

medium.com — With a sample size of one David Weinberger's clever scheme, 'Who does a better interview - a pro at CNN or the crowd from Reddit?' is just the provocation I need to explain something about that weird contraption: campaign journalism, American-style, presidential election division.

The political system evolves, man. You're supposed to be our guides to that. You see, this is the problem right here.
