Philip Butta conducts a great interview with Nate Silver for Chicago Magazine. I could pull many great quotes from this, but I’ll limit myself to one:
How can you cover politics and not have any sense for where you think the truth lies in the problem? That disturbs me. A lot of journalism wants to have what they call objectivity without them having a commitment to pursuing the truth, but that doesn’t work. Objectivity requires belief in and a commitment toward pursuing the truth—having an object outside of our personal point of view.
