Murmurs among the media
At The Atlantic, Derek Thompson informs us once and for all that journalists are miserable, liberal, over-educated, under-paid, middle-aged men ... mostly. "More moral now tho?" journalist Matthew Nordin pointed out, referring to this graph. Philadelphia Daily News' Will Bunch reflected, "This article REALLY struck a chord with me, but I can't put my finger on why."
Slate's Amanda Hess pulls no punches again, elaborating on how Maureen Dowd caricatured Bill Clinton’s mistress as a crazy bimbo -- "and won a Pulitzer for it," Hess added on Twitter. At the National Journal, Ron Fournier reminded Dowd, "Remember, @NYTimesDowd, the revolution always eats its own."
Plus, Bloomberg Businessweek's Joshua Green tells us the Heritage Foundation news site seeks mainstream impact --- alternatively titled "The Tea Party Gets Into the News Biz."
Oh, and here's The Huffington Post, nine years on.
