Favorite quote:
“We learn from history as much as a rabbit learns from an experiment that's performed upon it.” (W.G. Sebald)

What do I strive to be as a journalist?
We journalists have a responsibility not only to deliver the news as quickly, accurately and completely as we can, but also to put it in context. We’re the ones who have been following events closely, so it’s up to us to cut through the hype and obfuscation and tell people what we think the news actually means.
