Question: What is the press doing right?
Richard Meier: Well the thing that I guess I respect most in the New York Times is that you don’t just get the news, but you get information on things that are happening in parts of the world that you don’t get anywhere else – that whether it’s . . . it’s what’s happening in Africa, or that it’s what’s happening in Iraq. Whether it’s . . . Wherever it is, that you learn about events that are affecting so many thousands and thousands of people you would never know about from any other source. And I was reading something the other day about Iceland. And I’m just amazed, you know, by an article in the paper. So for me, that’s very important – reading and knowing about those things.
