Our guest this week is Bloomberg reporter Dave Weigel, no doubt familiar to many of our readers. It turned out to be a wide ranging conversation which covered Dave’s roots and education, as well as his early work as a reporter. We get into some discussions regarding media bias and where Dave stands on the subject of the need for political agnosticism among reporters. Of course, we couldn’t have an interview with Weigel without getting into the entire JournoList scandal, Dave’s place in it and what lessons he’s taken away from it half a decade later.
Doug and I had a pretty good time on this one and it ran a bit longer than usual. Click away.
