Columbia Journalism Review: Remembering Judith Crist
August 7, 2012 § 1 Comment
I won’t normally update this site with my work for the Columbia Journalism Review, just because there will be a lot of it, and that would get boring. But there are pieces I’ve written for CJR in the last month that I’m particularly proud of, including a Q and A with the North Korea bureau chief from the AP. Jean Lee is slowly establishing a working bureau in Pyongyang, where most western journalists have severe limits on their freedom and have to operate under constant surveillance. I can think of few interviews I’ve found more inspiring.
Today brought the sad news that one of my professors from Columbia Journalism School, Judith Crist, has died at the age of 90. I was in her last class when she gave up teaching in spring. CJR graciously let me write a very personal obituary, which I thought was worth a special mention here.
