“Towards a non-neutered journalism” roundup edition:
- Dave Weigel’s professional life story. The lesson: be humble, and don’t be a dick (needlessly).
- Judging journalists on the work they produce. Bonus: Yglesias on the same subject. Double-bonus: “The myth of the opinionless man.”
- 538′s Nate Silver weighs in.
- Liz Mair points out that Weigel’s libertarian politics and JournoList dickishness1 gave both liberals and conservatives reasons to target him.
- Old head TNC drops some of his accumulated wisdom.
- Not that the two are necessarily related. ↩
