Stephen Crowley On Covering Politics

PDNOnline’s David Walker talked with The New York Times’ Stephen Crowley about his work covering Washington politics. When asked what fascinates him about the topic, he answered:

It’s the sport of kings. You have teams, you have strong players and weak players and trades, and schemes. It’s always a story. And it’s a vocation you can do that actually benefits people. You don’t get rich doing this, but you live an incredibly rich life.

I added the emphasis – isn’t that the core of why we commit acts of journalism?
