What we read while pondering confirmation bias:

  • Time‘s profile of Newark Mayor Cory Booker warms one of our Jersey-raised hearts, even if it fails to answer its most intriguing question: How has the election of Obama “diluted the Booker brand?” Sean Gregory’s piece seems to do a better job of getting to know Booker in a shorter amount of time–see: the “Frasier” anecdote–than last year’s Esquire profile that earned a letter to the editor from Booker himself. Of course, all these profiles of Booker give credence to the criticism that the mayor can’t get enough publicity.
  • An extensive profile of the the NPI-consensus best announcing trio in baseball… and sports. Hat Tip to Neil Best whose Watchdog blog we also endorse, particularly for those interested in sports media.
