What was your first job as a journalist?

How is social media changing news?

It's turned every organization into a breaking news outlet. You are always right on deadline, and everyone in the world is your competitor.

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Tintin. Sometimes he's too involved and becomes the story, but he chases a lead to the ends of the earth. That's passion.
