Greetings and salutations!
I’ve got new writing up at a few places and I’m getting ready to travel again for work so won’t have the time to post them here.
In the event you didn’t know, I’m HUGE in Italy. I’m writing for a Italian news magazine and site, il Giornale. They’re the fifth largest newspaper in Italy (yea, how’s that for impressive). They’ve launched a new publication and web site called InsideOver and I write for them.
And no, I’m not huge in Italy, that was sarcasm.
I’m writing politically themed articles for InsideOver. The articles lean a little left (shocking as that may be) but aren’t that opinionated so don’t be too nervous. You’ll find the edited and more opinionated writing here and on Medium.
If you’re part of the Twitter world, I do use the Twitter out of necessity. Somehow it’s turned into a news outlet (fuckin’ Trump).
In any event, that is all.
Also, it’s rare I pimp for a media outlet so take this for what it’s worth. Consider supporting The Intercept. Founded by documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras (since departed to focus on films), Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill they are, in their words, adversarial journalists.
In my words, they are the most important news outlet operating in America today.
You may or may not have heard their name mentioned in the more mainstream press. If you have, I suspect not in the most favorable light. The Intercept does the work that The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, pick your paper, wishes they could do. The Intercept is not ad supported.
So, much like NPR, they have more freedom. Unlike NPR, they don’t seem to give two fucks about pissing the powers that be off.
The Intercept reports the kinds of stories that actually need to be told these days and devotes the time and resources necessary to tell the story.
If you throw a few dollars at NPR, consider poking around The Intercept and see if you like what they do (full disclosure – I contribute to both NPR & The Intercept).
I won’t say what The Intercept is doing is God’s work, but I will say it’s God damn important work. Especially now considering the butt nugget that we’re required to refer to as President of the United States.
If you want to get a jump on what will eventually be reported on the other media outlets, you’ll want to keep on eye on what The Intercept is reporting. That’s not hyperbole either.
NOW, that is all.
