      Interesting interview! Some of the responses seemed a bit overly-diplomatic, but I suppose that's going to be the case when you're constantly being attacked on all sides by all sides. Sulzberger clearly has both an impossible and immensely important job.

      One of my favorite parts of the exchange was about how journalists now spend their working days and how that has impacted their perspectives and reporting:

      Are you saying that’s changed? That reporters are just sitting in rooms in front of a screen? I don’t think that’s the case.

      Of course it’s the case! It’s the least talked-about and most insidious result of the collapse of the business model that historically supported quality journalism.

        Thanks for posting this Jeff! I loved so much about this interview and agree the part about how the news room has changed was great.

      I could not stop reading this excellent interview. Here are a few things that jumped out that I loved: “Journalism requires a posture of searching rather than knowing.” “The question is,”Are you animated by an open mind, a skeptical mind and a commitment to following the facts where they lead.” “It’s the willingness to put the facts above any individual agenda.” “They may almost never agree, but they learn something.”
